Client Testimonials


CBSS takes pride in the unique customer service and attentive care it provides each client.

Colleges and universities nationwide trust CBSS for their recruiting needs. Check out what they’re saying below! 




Our CBSS account manager has periodically reached out to me to inquire about our needs.  His friendly, yet professional approach was what prompted me to continue to request additional funding from the Dean.  He has been quick to respond to my questions.  I felt as if he had a personal interest in our success in growing our applicant pool.  I appreciate his quality customer service as that is something that is rare to find in today’s busy and high-tech world, and I look forward to a continued work relationship.

Flagler College

Assistant Director of Admissions & Marketing

Our university has experienced some significant changes to our marketing strategies in regard to attracting new students for the year.  With these strategy changes came a shift in how we do business over previous years.  Our CBSS account executive has been very instrumental in helping Saint Leo achieve our goals with list purchases.  He has been very responsive in our communications and in offering best practices to purchase names that best fit our targets.  Saint Leo also really appreciates the fact that he was respectful to our budgets and offered insight as to how we can maximize our dollars to increase our reach.

During the past 25 years I have worked with Clayton Allan and CBSS as a source of student search names. While at University of Indianapolis, Butler University, and the Indiana University campuses of Indianapolis and now Columbus I have found the lists from CBSS to be helpful in building out a robust recruitment funnel of prospective students.

We are finding lists of names from CBSS to be extremely valuable and effective to our recruitment strategies and initiatives.

Lawrence Tech has worked with CBSS for over 16 years, and in that time, we have been very pleased with the level of service in helping us reach our target markets.  Our CBSS account representative has been a pleasure to work with – always willing to go the extra mile to guide us to the best results.  From the de-duping pricing structure to speed of delivery, CBSS has proved to be a successful tool in helping us shape our class year after year.

I have found CBSS to provide timely response and strong customer service.  Our CBSS account executive is easy to work with, and works with our search vendor in a collaborative manner.  The investment in search is significant, but the cost of his services make it reasonable to manage within our budget.

Director of Undergraduate Admissions


I reached out to our CBSS rep as Cardinal Stritch has never had a Junior buy plan and I wanted to get some advice on making a strategic purchase of names that would work with my other vendors. Our rep was immediately responsive to my email, calling me back that afternoon. Once we decided on quantity and demographics of my name purchase he was very patient with the time it took for me to secure a PO and actually make the purchase.

I look forward to continuing the positive relationship with CBSS. Working with so many vendors for different products, it is great knowing that I have an account manager that gets things done right the first time and in a timely manner.

Cardinal Stritch University

Sr. Director of Graduate and Undergraduate Admissions


CBSS proves its value by providing names every year that we have not yet purchased from other sources, and by allowing us not to repurchase names that we have gotten from other sources. The response rate for CBSS names are strong, and the bottom line is that CBSS students are in our entering class each year. 

The staff at CBSS provide consistent and prompt service, and are always willing to assist any way they can.

The way our CBSS account manager always has a time response and works to get us the right leads is much appreciated. For a school the size of Stephens College, we rely on partnerships with companies that are trustworthy and always have our best interests in mind in terms of budget and strategy.

The interaction with CBSS has always been relationship-based, not a transactional process between businesses. I look forward to continuing our partnership as we continue to develop cutting-edge recruitment strategies.

One thing I appreciate most is CBSS’s business model – they have no annual dues or extended contracts which allows for a quick turnaround in receiving orders. Additionally, I have enjoyed working with our CBSS account executive.  He is professional, personable, and provides immediate support.

In a time when name buys are rapidly changing, we appreciate CBSS’s partnership and their commitment to making things easy.

This year SUNY-Potsdam wanted to dip our proverbial toe into Digital Marketing and our CBSS account manager was outstanding at walking us through the process from the time we first discussed it, to setting up what we wanted/needed, through the contract process, and then while the program was moving though fulfilment. 

So often, companies have two or three handoffs for each project, but with CBSS, I know I can count on my account manager from beginning to end.  He is professional, enthusiastic and just a good person to talk to.  He is what sales used to be.…building relationships, finding out what your needs really are and then giving you options for how CBSS can help….I can’t ask for more than that!

I’d like to express my sincere thanks for the services CBSS provides to WT Admissions. In a time of dwindling test score names, we’ve been helped by having an alternative source for prospective students. CBSS has helped us expand our name purchase net not only in high school markets but also In the transfer market, which has traditionally been difficult to capture.

Thank you for being our partner in these times of needed innovation and reimagining higher education recruitment.

Student search is a crucial part of our recruitment process at Geneva College, as we seek to enroll students of high quality and good “fit.”  CBSS has been instrumental in helping to connect Geneva with the right students.  I also appreciate the quick response to questions and fast delivery of the student names.  Above all, I am very pleased with the overall yield rates of these students, making the college’s investment worthwhile.

The entire team at CBSS works closely with their partner institutions to provide timely and accurate information on prospective students.  The high level of customer service, along with unique methods of gathering data, is a refreshing change from many of the other lead-generation sources. CBSS continues to demonstrate adaptability and flexibility with their clients.

Widener University

Director of Admissions


CBSS is one of the most knowledgeable vendors we use and provides accurate information with an exceptionally quick turnaround. With the decreased number of students taking standardized tests, I expect our reliance on CBSS to increase and expect many colleges and universities will do the same.

I would wholeheartedly recommend working with CBSS to any institution working to acquire the names of qualified prospective students.
