Mixtroz destroys the concept behind homophily.

That’s the theory that birds of a feather flock together and we see this anywhere that humans, people, and especially your students or faculty, gather.

With the Mixtroz event and meeting platform, we put a stop to homophily using technology to meet your campus where it is, seamlessly creating community among students, alumni, and faculty.

All while you learn about who they actually are (instead of who you think they are.)

Better college orientation mixers =
higher student satisfaction, progression and graduation

Students who feel connected through your new student orientation are more likely to report positive student life experiences, which lead to retention, progression, and higher rates of graduation.

Improved faculty performance and morale

Mixtroz breaks down the silos that separate your faculty.

Using the Mixtroz app, your faculty can easily and efficiently connect with peers in dynamic, thoughtful groups.  Studies show that engaged employees are more productive at work. Use Mixtroz to unlock interdepartmental synergies keeping your students on campus.

Faculty easily and efficiently connect with peers in dynamic groups established by the Mixtroz app.
College alumni use the Mixtroz app to divide into meaningful groups based on interests and field of study.

Amplified alumni engagement

Engaged alumni are key community members that are more likely to purchase, donate, sign up for future alumni events and, most importantly, keep coming back.

Use the Mixtroz meeting and event platform at your next seated event to facilitate the most dynamic tables in seconds, helping to create new memories among those that share your institution’s mission and values.

So, how do you get started with Mixtroz?

Using Mixtroz is as simple as sending an e-invite or setting up an event page.

Login into the Mixtroz Dashboard

Login into the Mixtroz Dashboard

Begin by logging into your Mixtroz Dashboard. You’ll see the option to “Add a New Event.” From there, you’ll name your event, add branded imagery and plug in your event details (like location, day of the event, start and end time.)

Customize 10 Questions

Customize 10 Questions

After you finish your event details, you can customize 10 questions, choose from our library of pre-made questions or use any combination of the two. 

You choose what to ask and weight your questions to group attendees that have answered similar or diverse to create the most dynamic networking opportunities.

Have a sponsor? We’ve got you covered there too! Create sponsor banners or link to a video to be displayed to all attendees “in-app”!

At your gathering, attendees launch the Mixtroz mobile app to join your mix. They create a virtual name tag, snap a selfie, answer questions all in under 3.5 minutes. When the mix is launched, they are assigned a group based on your preferences and are guided to that group for a curated networking session.

Run Of Show

Below is a sample event agenda for events powered by Mixtroz.

Your team will have your attendees download the Mixtroz app and complete the virtual nametag portion.

Mixtroz has an average of 95% user adoption in higher education. Be intentional! If your attendees haven’t downloaded the app and completed questions, remind them to do so!  You have a live view of user adoption throughout your activation in the Mixtroz dashboard.

Once your desired number of attendees have completed their questions, it’s time to create your groups. You can set this to manual or automatic. Location numbers are revealed in-app to your attendees and they physically move to their meeting location in your venue.

Attendees move to their groups and check-in through the app. They’ll kick off their conversation with icebreakers and start connecting with their group, curated by you!

The Mixtroz  meeting and event platform is simple to set up and even more simple to use. But you might have questions or want us to walk you through step-by-step — we’d love to connect with you!
