Hello VZO!

VZO is an all-in-one onboarding & engagement management system built for New Students, Supporters, and Orientation Professionals. Take a moment to learn how we address and solve key areas for pre, current, and post-orientation processes.

New Student Onboarding

Provide your students an integrated on-boarding portal that individualizes their new student orientation experience. At the same, supply student supporters with an intentional and personalized on-boarding portal which augments and expands their student’s orientation engagement.

New Supporter Onboarding & Family Programs

Strengthen your relationship with student supporters with a portal that helps fill engagement gaps, supports enrollment retention goals, and connects families to campus partners and resources.

Family Weekend

Why should Family Weekend matter to Orientation Professionals? Imagine you could guide and easily register 75% of your incoming Supporters to Family Weekend (this year) through the student onboarding process, wouldn’t you want to learn?

Discover how VZO, Binghamton University, and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University partnered together to develop a new approach to engaging supporters during the student onboarding process that strengthened the relationship with Family Programs and other campus partners.

Orientation Leader Onboarding

Your Orientation Leaders may be your #1 untapped resource. What if your OL's became integral to your retention and persistence strategy? What if the OL experience continued beyond the first day of class, into the first semester, the first year, and beyond?

Through early and intentional engagement, OL's can leverage the power of peer mentorship to build a sense of belonging and increase student awareness and utilization of campus resources. Unleash the potential of your Orientation Leaders by recruiting, hiring, and training future Orientation Leaders all through VZO.
