• Strive Virtual College Exploration Week

    In light of recent college fair cancellations across our region and nationally, we have partnered with StriveScan and other associations around the country to provide a virtual alternative.  

    Through unprecedented collaboration, we are excited to announce the Strive Virtual College Exploration Week, which will provide a unique and diverse program for the students as they begin to navigate their postsecondary options:

    Monday, April 20 - Thursday, April 23, 2020

    • 300+ colleges from 44 states and 10 countries
    • 96 sessions over 4 days
    • Day and evening options
    • Panel presentations on a range of topics for juniors and underclassmen
    • Free and open to students nationwide

    Registration for students and parents is now live:

    Students and families can visit StriveScan.com/virtual to view the schedule of sessions and register.

    The 96 panel presentations include topics ranging from:

    • Finding college fit
    • Essay writing
    • Visits (on-campus and virtual)
    • In-state options vs. Going out of state

    Every panel includes the perspectives from at least three different institutions and all presentations are 45 minutes in length. 

    Students can browse the schedule or search based on topic, state, or specific college/university. They can also get more information on each institution presenting, including the school’s location, size, average GPA, test scores, and Test Optional status.

    Student Registration

    Students should register for each panel that they want to attend. Once they register, they’ll receive a confirmation email with their unique link to join the Zoom webinar. (Students will also receive a barcode, but the barcode is not necessary for this virtual event.)

    The following VA institutions are participating, many doing presentations that students could sign up for!  Over 300 institutions total.  Great resource for juniors and younger, too!
