Many college admission offices across the country have had to cut their travel budgets for recruitment trips this fall. As a result, admission counselors may not be attending as many college fairs in person as they have in the past. College Week Live offers a great alternative to the in-person college fair. With a virtual college fair you can simply log on to your computer,”visit” the college of your choice and chat online with college reps. Sometimes there are even themed chats with topics ranging from financial aid and scholarships to sessions specifically for transfer students.
Virtual college fairs are also a great option for students from rural communities who have difficulty traveling to a college fair or may not have college reps visiting their school. Another perk? You can attend in your pajamas and the college will never know!
