Questioning the Value of College Holiday Videos

I'm wondering what people think is the value of doing a holiday video for a college/university. What is the goal? Do schools make them simply because others are doing it? Who is the target audience - is it to maintain engagement with alums or to attract prospectives and their families? When do schools start planning them - (in September/October?) What do people see as a return on this investment of so much time?I'm asking because I have worked at one school where we made a holiday video…See More
