Surprising Facts About College Consumers You Can’t Afford to Miss [Infographic]

2019 College Explorer™ Market Research Study

College students make up an ever-changing consumer community that cannot be ignored. With almost 13 million undergraduate students in the U.S., with a purchasing power of $376 Billion annually, brands would be remiss to not cater campaigns to these entry point consumers.

For our annual College Explorer™ research study, Refuel Agency collects and curates detailed data from college students nationwide to help our clients authentically decode and engage with today’s fickle, yet vital college consumers.

College Undergrads represent an important demographic in today’s consumer base. Refuel Agency not only aggregates research data specific to this group, but also utilizes these learnings to build both online and on-campus marketing strategies for brands across the US.

Key findings from this year’s college market study:

On-Campus Marketing Is a Huge Opportunity
Students spend nearly 70% of their waking hours on campus, whether they live in on-campus housing or not, but over 75% of students live on or near campus full-time. Out-of-Home marketing campaigns speak to students during this time and have been proven to be an effective brand building strategy.

College Students Represent a Huge Spending Segment
Undergrad students have annual discretionary spending of over $130 Billion.

Students Still Shop In-Store
Contrary to popular assumption, most students report shopping in brick and mortar stores frequently.

Students Actively Engage with Varied Media
Students actively engage with various media types, including on-campus out-of-home media, social media campaigns, and online videos.
