Princeton Review, CollegeWeekLive Partner on Virtual College Fair
The Princeton Review and CollegeWeekLive have partnered in an effort to provide prospective college students greater insight to universities they are interested in attending.
As a result of the partnership, The Princeton Review will host a virtual college fair at collegeweeklive.com on May 25. Students and families attending the virtual fair will have access to college admissions officers to help them narrow down their choices. "These personal conversations will help students get to know the unique attributes of each school so they can hone in on the best college match," according to a news release.
The event will also feature live videos covering test prep and other topics in an effort to help prepare students to better navigate the college search and application process.
"Students already visit The Princeton Review for test preparation and other college counseling services," said Young Shin, senior vice president of global business development and partnerships at The Princeton Review, in a prepared statement. "The Princeton Review Virtual College Fair will be the first in a series of events that augment this offering to help students find the right school for them through live interaction."
"Today's students want more than a slick brochure or email from the schools they're considering," said Sumant Mauskar, CollegeWeekLive president, in a news release. "They want to have authentic conversations with those who know the schools best. That's why an increasing number of universities are giving students opportunities to meet with their admissions staff, students, and alumni virtually."
