When your campus is unreachable, Hijack remains open for business

Open days are one of the best sales opportunities for universities and colleges. But campus visits represent a serious investment for prospective students. Recent updates on COVID-19 will only deter prospective students further. When your campus is unreachable, how do you convince prospects that your university is the right choice? Hijack offers the solution
