“We’ve already seen a lot of mail and much of it is very generic. Your guide was cool and certainly different than the others. I loved the ‘things to notice or ask during a tour’. I’ve got another child in college so I’ve seen all sorts of recent mailings and marketing material from colleges, and this one was great!” —Parent of a high school sophomore
