Virtual College Fairs & Visits

Dear Juniors, It's very natural at this time to think about all the things that are hard about COVID-19, and all the things you’ve lost and are losing because of it. However, one thing that your class has gained is enhanced and more accessible information on colleges and universities through things like Virtual Fairs and Virtual Tours. As COVID-19 has made distancing a reality for everyone, most colleges and universities have stepped up their game to make their virtual presence much more informative and in-depth. Now, as most schools work to enhance the virtual experience for students across the globe, you can take the same tours and attend the same fairs as domestic students. In addition, a lot of schools are also offering the opportunity to meet one-on-one with admissions officers, and there is a rise in Virtual College fairs as well. Cialfo, the provider of our online college counseling software, hosted a virtual college fair back in March, and they recorded all of their sessions with individual universities, which you can view here: https://explore.cialfo.co/webinars So, this week, your task is to take advantage of these virtual opportunities. We would like you to explore an individual campus tour and/or attend a virtual fair where you can access multiple universities. A lot of the time, the virtual tour information is on the school website, no matter where in the world you are looking. There are virtual tours everywhere from Holland to Japan. While a lot of the virtual tour information can be found on the individual websites, here are some resources that might help you: A spreadsheet for USA schools on their Virtual College Admissions Events: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ZOAtzZNAjwxoOQbKzMY2JvMll24LQHBXlpV158qQi0U/edit#gid=0 Virtual Webinars & College Fairs: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1woEx8bil0ren77H6x-TSje1y_hyJxjnmCiBwa8NTYEQ/edit#gid=0 A list of events in USA, Canada, UK: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1sO7pVos0EvK0BvXoMbnyg00K6r7hXbOQE0HNXF4N4eM/htmlview?fbclid=IwAR098hv9jHS9I1YOhWYAj6FF7mgorhUOF5snFNNHh9YzInoYNBZUjzD7mr0#gid=0 In addition to virtual tours, here are some opportunities to attend virtual fairs that have a number of university representatives. Here are some virtual fairs available to you, and we will continue to post fairs as we are notified as well: https://virtual.gotocollegefairs.com/virtual?uid=5e9e9b045607d Also, here is a College Greenlight Online Block Party with some great universities presenting (28 & 29 April): https://www.crowdcast.io/e/online-college-block?cm_ven=ExactTarget&cm_cat=College%20Block%20Party%20-%20Counselor%202&cm_pla=VPL%20506%20for%20List%2024&cm_ite=https:%2F%2Fwww.crowdcast.io%2Fe%2Fonline-college-block%2Fregister&cm_lm=12966248
