About the Event
Enrollment acquisition just got easier
The Big Virtual - College Admissions Fair is a national online college fair hosted by eCareerFairs.com that attracts tens of thousands of college-bound high school students from around the country. Join hundreds of other colleges and universities showcasing their schools. Using live streaming sessions and one-on-one video and text chat conversations demonstrate your school's unique qualities to curious and inquisitive students looking for the perfect higher-ed opportunity. The venue of the event is very similar to an open house, where any number of representatives from different departments (ie: admissions, nursing, math, science, athletics, finance, clubs, etc) highlight your school’s benefits. eCareerFairs is working with with leading organizations to draw great candidates to exceed your enrollment goals.
