Best College Admissions Videos on YouTube
Tired of seeing the same-old brochures, emails, videos, postcards and other marketing materials from colleges? Well, there are some universities out there who think outside the box and generate creative, and eye-catching, materials to attract your attention.
Here are a few of the most interesting and creative recruitment and admissions videos we’ve seen from colleges and universities on YouTube.

This college’s mascot gives students the “push” they need to succeed (and apply) to the college.
Cleveland Institute of Art (OH): Brokaw: C.I.A. Admissions Video
Although this video is a little slow-paced (and even though it was posted way back in 2007), it’s still relevant. The video uses illustrations and art to show you what the school is all about and what you might experience as a student.
Georgia Tech: Fight Admission-Induced Stress with Georgia Tech’s Accurate Admissions Resource Guide
This video claims “young people across America are battling a silent, but very real threat: Admission Induced Stress.” It directs you to visit the university’s online guide about the admissions process.

This isn’t your typical admissions office video: it’s a music video featuring students sharing information about the college with a “hip-hop twist.”
Wartburg College (IA): Call Me
Remember Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit song from a couple years ago, “Call Me, Maybe”? The Wartburg Admissions Office staff and students lip-sync to the song and show you a bit of campus in this video.
