Like most colleges and universities, Allen University is faced with the urgent need of marketing the institution and recruiting the best and brightest students. Currently, major strategies include representation at various college and high school fairs nationally and internationally as the budget will allow; which is why your role is imperative to the overall admissions recruitment plan.
