November 6, 2000: Online College Fair
Been to a college fair at or near your high school? Online College Fair is surprisingly similar but can be experienced with all the comforts of home. The site brings the college search experience to the college-bound student. The site describes itself this way: “It is an interactive, online event that allows you and your parents to chat live with school representatives, view campuses, and learn about school offerings through a virtual Q&A session.
During an Online College Fair, you’ll move from college to college in the Exhibit Hall to ask questions and get information from the participating colleges. You can search for schools that match your specific interests. Your ability to move through the Exhibit Hall, stop at booths, and chat with school reps makes the Online College Fair experience virtually the same as being there.”
Online College Fair also offers Online OpenHouses, which the site describes as “similar to an Online College Fair, except the event is sponsored by one specific school. That means you can get more detailed information about a school or its programs that may be of particular interest to you.”
