Virtual College Fair Offers Front-Row Access to Admission Officers


As most readers are aware, students and their families aren't getting quite as many chances to visit college campuses in person this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately, however, virtual college fairs provide a great way to meet with college admission advisors without having to leave your house.

If you're looking for an opportunity to connect with admission counselors, consider registering for Verto Education's upcoming National College Fair, which is taking place at 6 p.m. ET on September 29. Featuring reps from over 60 colleges and universities, you'll be able to hear from current college students, attend workshops and ask questions that can help you make your college choice.

The participating schools represent colleges from across the country, including such universities as William & Mary, Bucknell, Loyola Chicago, the University of Vermont and more. In addition, you'll have access to a live Q&A with Jeff Selingo, New York Times bestselling author, Washington Post columnist and renowned higher education strategist.

You can also consider sitting in on the following workshops during the event:

  • FAFSA: Learn about the financial aid process two days before the application opens this year
  • How to make informed college decisions aligned with your career goals
  • How to manage your mental health throughout college

Secure your spot to the event by visiting the Verto event registration page. Space is filling up, so sign up soon!

If you'd like to learn more about Verto's mission to help students get college credit for their global travels, visit our forum discussion, where you can ask questions about the program and get answers.
