Virtual College Fair Introduces Students, Parents to Admissions Counselors
CollegeWeekLive and the National Society of High School Scholars are hosting an event where students and families can live chat with admissions counselors from higher education institutions across the country.
CollegeWeekLive, a website where students and colleges connect online, is partnering with the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), an international honor society, to host a virtual college fair. The partners are hosting the “Back to School Event” for students and families to live chat with admissions counselors to ask questions about admissions.
On August 25 there will be admissions counselors from more than 80 colleges and universities spread across the country. Participants have the opportunity to ask about programs, careers, scholarships and campus life to help guide them in their college selection. Additionally, there is a chance to win a $1,000 monthly scholarship that can be secured by logging in to the virtual college fair and visiting five college profile pages on the site.
“We’re excited to partner with NSHSS to help provide students with an edge in the college admissions process and give them the insights to find the right college match,” said Sumant Mauskar, president of CollegeWeekLive, in a statement. “This is also a tremendous opportunity for universities to connect with high-achieving, highly motivated students from around the United States.”
Further information about the Back to School Event, including a list of participating institutions, is available on the CollegeWeekLive site.
