The new school year for most students is here. And with it, the start of semester classes at universities. Have you thought about the fact that it is possible to very effectively involve SMS messages in communication on campus with students? We’ve put together a few tips to inspire you on what such communication could look like.

Notification SMS

Send your students a reminder of a change in class time and location via SMS. You can do the same during the exam period to remind them of exam dates.

Promote a planned event

Promote a planned major university event and inform about the possibility of purchasing tickets in advance. Be sure to include a link in the text message where tickets can be purchased or reserved.

Reminders via SMS

Notify students of the deadline for returning borrowed library books. Otherwise, notify them of the possibility of picking up the reserved book.

Quick SMS reminders

Your students will appreciate it if you regularly inform them of current job offers posted by your college or university.

Job vacancies

If there have been closures or restrictions on certain parts of the campus, send a text message with this information.

Payment information

Your students should be informed well in advance of important information relating to tuition fees. Text messages are the ideal means to guarantee a high rate of message delivery.
