Campus Compare

I got an email from Robin Levinson at Campus Compare about their new site. They are launching free webinar on TODAY Dec. 11, at 3pm .

below is the release from Robin

- Gene

Please allow me to introduce—a free website that gathers information on over 3000 U.S. campuses from the U.S. Dept. of Education, the colleges themselves, and current college students.

Covering 15 categories from Academics to Greek Life, Athletics to Diversity, the site provides a 360-degree view that includes reviews, videos and photos to help high school students find their best college match.

What Makes it Different?
CampusCompare presents college information in a fun way that speaks to the students where they are – online. With interactive tools like "What Are My Chances?" and "MatchMe Meter", the site makes finding a college fast and easy, and truly engages students in the process. And because all the tools are free, students can short list their favorite schools, save and share the information they choose to, take virtual college visits, and even budget for campus life with a Financial Aid Calculator.

A New Way to Reach Students
We recognize the critical role that counselors play in the college decision process and the important information they provide to their students. As college application deadlines approach, many counselors tell us they see their students getting overwhelmed by college admissions but don't have the time or resources to help on an individual basis. CampusCompare's counselor tools were specifically designed to help counselors help more students—24/7, all with just a few clicks of a mouse.

Our Counselor tools are absolutely free and help you:
  • Give motivated students the tools to work independently;
  • Suggest school matches to individuals or groups of students;
  • Stay aware of deadlines and check-in on students' progress;
  • Send personal messages to individuals;
  • Broadcast information to student groups;
  • Share files, links, and important dates with both students and parents.

"My students love CampusCompare because it doesn't feel like work. By involving them in a fun, interactive way it makes them more independent and frees up my time to use it where it's needed most." ~ Karen Allen, Westmount High School

Please join us for a free webinar on TODAY Dec. 11, at 3pm for a tour through the website and information on how to use our tools to help your students.
