If Generation Z is the first generation of digital natives, what is the best strategy for marketing college recruitment to them? Video marketing has been proven to be the most profitable form of marketing, especially short videos that can easily be spread on social media. Generation Z connects with a university most when they are able to see themselves reflected back in a diverse student body. Generation Z doesn't like "fluff" in their university recruitment marketing; this money-minded generation wants to see that they will quickly be able to get a job, internship, or campus opportunities to advance their career. As of the 2019-2020 school year, college campuses are officially majority Generation Z. Colleges and universities need to adjust their marketing strategies for this new generation.
