Our national survey results, which we presented at the 2020 AMA Symposium for the Marketing of Higher Education, reveal potential opportunities for colleges and universities in densely populated regions to boost enrollment. Among parents of college-bound high school seniors, 49% now prefer a college or university closer to home, a significant increase of nearly 25% from our national survey findings in the spring—33% of high school seniors agree with parents.
Many high school seniors and their parents also express serious concerns about the cost of tuition and a need for frequent updates on campus safety precautions.
