How do the fairs work?
The virtual college fairs are very much like a traditional college fair. The students log in to the main page that has a list of all the participating colleges. The students can click on each institution to go into their booth page and read about that college. In each booth there will be information about the school with pictures and/or video, an information request form for hard leads and a question and answer section that can be done live or daily. The fairs are open for 6 full days each.
Each student can leave a question for you, the college rep, that can be answered at any time. When you answer the students questions they are automatically sent an email with the answer and the opportunity to respond to your answer. You will have a log in as a moderator so you will be able to answer any way you like. You will get a transcript at the end of the fair with all the correspondence from the fair!
Who can participate?
Any college, university, trade school or specialty school is welcome to register for any region’s fair, your college does not have to be from that region. College Fairs Online will build your virtual booth page for you based on what your institution would like included.
