How Prospects Use Pathify

Meet Penny Prospect!

Penny is:

  • A high school senior from Texas
  • Captain of her swim team
  • In the school choir
  • Thinking about majoring in sociology
  • A member of her school’s Spanish club
  • A first generation college student
  • Dreaming about attending University U

Penny loves University U, but she wants to make sure it’s the right school for her. She looked at their website, but found it overwhelming and not very helpful. So she downloaded the University U Prospective Students app where she found exactly what she was looking for.

Not Ready to Commit Yet

At first, Penny just wants information … without having to sign up for anything. University U’s prospective student experience lets Penny start explore and seeing important information right way — like this alert about a Q&A session she wants to attend:

“Welcome Prospective Students! There’s a virtual Q&A session on Friday at 5pm PT. We’ll have students from a variety of backgrounds online to talk about their University U experience and answer any questions you may have. We hope you can join us!”

Alert Screen

Widgets

Important info in one place

She also sees several widgets right on the main dashboard, including the school’s Twitter feed and an event calendar. She excitedly scrolls through the calendar to learn what types of events she can look forward to as a student.

Pages

Shortcuts to key pages

Penny has some questions about the admissions process and application deadlines. Instead of digging through the website on her own, she uses a shortcut in the app to access the exact page she needs.

Penny Raises Her Hand

Penny’s loving the Prospect app, but she wants more information. So she signs up for an account and gains access to even more features.

Groups

Building group connections

Penny sees a notification that she’s been added to a group for the class of 2026! She opens the group and sees that fellow University U hopefuls are introducing themselves. She posts a quick introduction and sends a direct message saying hi to a girl who lives in the next town over.

Search

Finding more ways to connect

Curious about what other groups are available, Penny does a quick search and joins groups for:

  • University U athletics
  • First generation college students
  • The acapella group
  • Sociology majors
  • University U students from Texas
  • Spanish club

She learns a lot of great information by looking at resources posted in the groups and asks a few questions to learn more from existing students.

Staying on Track

Messaging

Building a support system

Penny is accepted to University U! As soon as she receives her acceptance letter she logs into myUU. She sees that she has a direct message from a sophomore who is also a first generation student. She offers to answer any questions Penny has and to meet up for coffee when she gets to campus.

Tasks

Keeping up with deadlines

Now that she’s been accepted, Penny receives tasks. These tasks have details, links and deadlines for important items like filling out on-campus housing preferences registering for classes and selecting an orientation group. There’s a lot to do before Penny arrives on campus this fall and she’s grateful these tasks are here to guide her.

As a New Student

Using the same portal as a student

When she arrives on campus in August, Penny signs into myUU with her new school email address and sees a new set of widgets, tools, tasks, alerts and groups to help guide her journey as a student.
