Incoming first-year students to St. Lawrence College (SLC) have a new resource to guide them through the admissions and enrollment process, thanks to an artificially intelligent chatbot launched in March 2019. The chatbot, known as PAL (Personal Assistant Line), was developed in partnership with AdmitHub, whose pioneering approach to conversational AI enables colleges and universities to provide applicants with proactive, personalized support and guidance.  

"As a new generation of digitally savvy students arrives on campus, we have an unprecedented opportunity to rethink the way we support students in the transition to college," said Stewart Clark, Director of Marketing, Communications and Recruitment at SLC. "By providing students with immediate, 24/7 support, we're able to eliminate friction in the enrollment process and unlock time for our admissions team to provide hands-on support to students who need it most."
