From 2013-2018, our office provided the state of Minnesota with a text message based college access program called Summer Nudging. It texted recently graduated high school seniors simple reminders throughout the summer to keep them on track for college enrollment in the fall. We partnered with the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, Bemidji State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead, Minnesota State University Mankato, Fond du lac Tribal and Community College, and St. Cloud State University. Overall, we texted more than 15,000 students!
