Will Gen Z ever go back to full-time in-person?

Will Gen Z ever go back to full-time in-person?

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, for the students who started their college or career experience during the pandemic, they may not have the nostalgia for full-time in-person? And we see that preferential difference in the data. With 1 in 4 college leaders stating they don’t plan to offer remote class options by 2025, pandemic willing. But at the same time, a full 63% of students surveyed claimed they prefer either an online or hybrid education model.

The takeaway? For all of the quality limitations in the pandemic education experience our students received, the modality at least was interesting to them. Far more so than for college leaders. So how will that contrast show up in the makeup of college choice moving forward?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
