During these unprecedented times, creative and innovative solutions are needed to address the challenges we are currently facing in admissions. In light of recent college fair cancellations across our region and nationally, we are partnering with StriveScan and other associations around the country to provide a virtual alternative:
Strive for College Knowledge
Virtual College Exploration Week
Monday, April 20 – Wednesday, April 23, 2020
Sponsored by StriveScan in partnership with these national organizations:
- Open to students nationwide
- 3 days of virtual, panel presentations from +100 college reps
- Extensive range of topics targeted towards juniors and underclassmen
- Variety of time slots throughout the day: both day and evening options
- Free to both students and colleges
Each college must partner with two or more other colleges (minimum of three unique institutions total) to form a panel presentation and submit a proposal.
We are broadly considering two different types of presentation topics:
General college knowledge:
Colleges may present on general informational topics that may be of interest to the target audience of juniors/underclassmen and their families. For example: Paying for College, Essay Writing, the Value of a Liberal Arts Education, Video Game Design Programs, or LGBTQ Student Issues. Be creative! Colleges are encouraged to present on topics of access and equity.
Colleges with a shared affinity, characteristic, or geography:
Groups of colleges may present about their institutions that share some commonality. For example: the BIG10 colleges, HBCUs, Public Colleges in the Northwest, Liberal Arts Colleges in the Midwest.

We will provide more information on Monday, April 6 with the session schedule and instructions on how students and families can register to participate virtually.
There is no cost for either students or colleges to participate.
