It’s no secret that spring can be one of the busiest windows of time in the admissions cycle. Between spring break visits, yield events, spring recruitment travel, and mentally maintaining prospective and accepted classes, it’s easy to find ourselves and our student employees burning out. How can we best maintain great energy as we move into one of the most important times of year? How can we ensure our students are still getting the best service possible? And how can we make sure we still have a bit of time for ourselves?

In our broadcast, we’ll discuss what feeds into the spring burnout, as well as some strategies to avoid the burnout and to maintain our focus all the way through May.
