World’s Largest Admissions Meet and Greet Brings 40,000 College-Bound Teens, Representatives From More Than 200 Colleges Together at CollegeWeekLive SPRING

Free Online College Fairs at Brings Ease of the Internet to the College Search
BOSTON, MA March 9, 2010 -- CollegeWeekLive, the leading web destination which brings high school students and colleges together live online, announced today the largest online admissions event yet: CollegeWeekLive SPRING, Mach 24th and 25th from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM Eastern. An estimated 40,000 teens will login to CollegeWeekLive over two days with one goal in mind - to connect with thousands of admissions representatives from more than 200 higher education institutions from the convenience of a computer. Spring is historically the season when juniors kick off the college search in earnest.
Academic institutions participating in CollegeWeekLive SPRING range from Ivy League institutions to public and private universities and regional leaders in higher education. A complete list of participating schools is available at CollegeWeekLive and below. In addition, organizations such as the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Federal Student Aid, HP Academy, Sallie Mae, Knewton, Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA), the American Association of Landscape Architects, the Shell Eco-marathon, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) and The ACT are supporting partners of the two-day event. These student services organizations provide a variety of resources to CollegeWeekLive participants helping them to achieve their dreams of a college education.
CollegeWeekLive offers high school students and their families the opportunity to browse information on hundreds of colleges conveniently at one website and chat live with admissions representatives from participating colleges. Teens can attend informal Q & A video webcasts featuring current college students on campuses across the U.S. and around the world, garnering a sense for student life at schools of interest. Attendees can also watch leading experts present live on admissions topics such as the college application process, school fit, and uncovering scholarships and financial aid.
Increasingly, CollegeWeekLive online admission events represent the way teens prefer to research colleges and universities. Based on a March 2010 survey of more than two hundred thousand CollegeWeekLive registrants, the first step 79.7% high school students take when researching higher education is to “go online to college websites and online college fairs”. “Reading through brochures” came in a distant second at 10.9% and “visiting individual college campuses” was cited by just 6.3% of respondents as the first step in college research. For budget-conscious families, CollegeWeekLive represents a way to explore colleges before getting in the car or on a plane to visit a school in person.
