THIS VIRTUAL PLATFORM WILL HELP easily search options after high school in one location, offer live sessions to connect, & build relationships with professionals at those INSTITUTIONS.
These events provide the opportunity for institutions to interact with prospective students, counselors, parents, & beyond. At these events, students, counselors, parents, etc. will be able to:
1 - Schedule meetings with specific members of an institution.
2 - Attend LIVE Zoom sessions on specific topics including academics, financial aid, student affairs, student life, and more by institutions.
3 - Build relationships with institutions in a digital setting.
4 - Students easily filter, sort, like, and save institution profiles & information to their "student portal" to find institutions that fit what they are seeking.
5 - Students have the ability to browse pre-recorded videos that have been uploaded by institutions. This provides further opportunities for prospective students to get-to-know institutions and be able to go back on their own time to continue to learn about an institution.
Having multiple ways to connect offers higher levels of engagement between students and institutions to help build relationships, grow engagement, and ensure quality interactions even within the virtual world.
STUDENT DIRECT TEXT MESSAGING / email REMINDERS FOR LIVE SESSIONS

September Virtual Event - Registration Opens For Students, Counselors, & Parents
Starting September 14th the Virtual Event Registration Opens, and you and your students are welcome to start logging into the event to start liking profiles, researching exhibitors, and scheduling live sessions for the “Live” Event that begins on September 21st.
Snapshot Sessions - We highly recommend these sessions to resemble the "In-person fair experience" to start the week!
On Monday afternoon only, we will offer a quick intro of all exhibitors for the week. These “Snapshot Sessions” will allow students to quickly see 10 - 15 +/- institutions in one 15-20 minute group session. We will offer these sessions by types of colleges grouped together, and we encourage you to allow students time out of class to attend these “SnapShot Sessions” especially if they are unsure what they want to do after high school. These quick touch sessions to start to the week will allow students to then choose their next days ahead of their favorite “live college sessions.” *Check online for the detailed schedule of groupings a week before the event.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday, we will be offering these group live sessions via Zoom for students, counselors, parents to schedule. Students do not have to show their face. You are welcome to simply attend to hear live updates. However, most sessions will have the "Chat" function open for live questions. These will be offered in the time-blocks shown above, and colleges will schedule these their openings on their individual profiles. Scheduling happens by visiting the profile. Most of these sessions will have unlimited space to attend, however, if attendance is very busy and the sessions happens to meet capacity, we encourage students to see the exhibitor's additional session times and attend another time. Most sessions will have unlimited capacity. But we encourage students to reserve and save their place as soon as possible once registration opens.
*Important Notice: If you as the counselor are planning to project this particular sessions in a classroom or gym for many students to watch, please encourage your students to also sign up for these sessions on their own too, so that the colleges can see that they are interested and attending, and then are able to connect to each student's information/contact to send them more information after the event.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday, we will be offering these more personal meeting options for students, counselors, parents to schedule. These will be offered in the time-blocks shown above, and colleges will schedule their openings on their individual profiles. Scheduling happens by visiting the profile. Exhibitors may have limited offerings for this, so we encourage your students to sign up early to secure a spot. These will fill on a first-come-first serve basis.

These will include sessions such as: Financial Aid Help / Q&A, Virtual Event Help, College Application Week Overivew/Q&A, Montana School Counselor Association Gathering, Scholarship Updates, etc. Check back for a more detailed schedule of offerings.
