NJACAC is pleased to add one more virtual college fair program this spring in partnership with StriveScan on Monday, March 29th from 5PM – 7:45PM (EST).

This program will be to highlight colleges and universities across the country and what they offer to college-bound students who identify as LGBTQI+.

Creating a safe and inclusive campus is a goal that many institutions share. This opportunity allows your school to highlight the work that has been done to recruit and retain members of this population. This fair also provides a safe space for these students and families to ask questions they may not ask in a general college fair setting.

The goal of our virtual college fairs is to provide a wealth of college search information, allow them to browse and learn about different colleges, and ask questions of admissions counselors, all in a safe, flexible, online format. 

The program will consist of college knowledge sessions on topics such as finding a college that fits, tips for writing a college essay, campus life as an LGBTQI+ student, and more, presented by admission counselors. It will also feature a virtual college fair in the StriveScan 6×6 format.
