AL: Welcome to College Admissions Real Talk. This is Dr. Aviva Legatt, founder and Elite Admissions Expert at Ivy Insight and author of “Get Real and Get In”. Today, we’re going to be talking about virtual college fairs that you most definitely should attend. So today on the podcast, I wanted to give you some updates on some cool college fairs coming up that I recommend you check out. It really thinks that we can’t go to campuses and get proper tours this year, so we may as well take advantage of some of our Zoom time to take a look at colleges that might interest us. I strongly believe that colleges will be open to the best of their ability this fall and will have a lot of in-person instruction so that’s something to look forward to as you’re looking at these virtual college fairs. Here’s a rundown: all these fairs are different themes. Some of them you might love the sound of some of them you might think are not of interest to you. I wanted to capture a broad range of fairs for you if you check out the website: virtualcollegefairs.org You could find a full list of events that are coming up a few that are coming up include a general college fair on March 21. This is going to have hundreds of schools there and ready to meet with students. I definitely suggest you check that one out, then. On April 10, there’s the Western US College fair. So this is going to cover regional colleges in the Western part of the United States. Likewise, April 20 is going to cover the Southeastern US Fair. So if you think about your college search in terms of geography, going by region versus by general can be really helpful. Other kinds of college fairs coming up include more niche topics. There’s also fair in performing arts and visual arts colleges and that’s on March 16. And there is a different set of fairs on the website called strivescan.com, and here they’re hosting STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). College fairs that college fair is going to run on Monday, March 29, and at this college fair, there’s going to be a number of different sessions for different kinds of populations. Many international students will be well served by this fair because there are specific sessions for international students as well as for US-based students. Some of the colleges coming to the STEM fair include Harvey Med, Case Western Reserve University, University of Chicago, Rolls Hulman Rice, and many, many more. Of course, the familiar ones like MIT and Georgia Tech all these great colleges among others will be there so I definitely suggest checking this out. The other cool thing about this college fair is that there are some presentations that allow students to get insight into different STEM aspects. For example, they have pathways into robotics that takes place the next day on the Tuesday, March 30. There’s also other sessions on computer engineering topics and other kinds of STEM areas of interest offered by different professionals and these college as well. While we’re in this pandemic, let’s do our best to enjoy these virtual college fairs. Mark the date enter calendar and check out these websites to sign up.
