Virtual College Fair

Hi everyone! So, one day while browsing current event articles in the world of higher education, I stumbled on the College Week Live website. I had never heard about it before, but it has some great tools for students and parents who are just starting or continuing their college search process.

Many different universities are part of College Week Live, including: Abilene Christian University, Binghamton University (SUNY), Cornell University, Layola Marymount University, and many others. Because it is virtual, this is a great way to connect with these universities without having to travel directly to their campuses, especially for those universities that are across the country. You can chat with admissions representatives at scheduled times, view the colleges' profiles, and watch videos on different topics. This information helps you get a good feel of the college or university before you pursue it in greater detail.

One interesting event that College Week Live is hosting is a Virtual College Fair on Friday, August 13, 2015 from 2:00pm to 10:00pm. You just need to create an account with them and then tune in that day to attend the event from the comfort of your own home! There are some great schools already listed as participants and more to come. (Each time I log onto the webpage, a few new colleges have been added to the list.) Also, with attending the event, you are eligible to win a $2,500 scholarship, which is pretty great!

I plan on attending the event also and will give my opinion, viewpoints, and tips for this and future virtual college fairs! I definitely suggest you check it out if you have a free hour that Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!

enjoy the chase,
