The NOVVA Virtual College Fair was held for all juniors at Kellenberg to attend on Tuesday, May 4.
118 colleges and universities from around the world were present for the event, ranging from Adelphi University here on Long Island, to Duke Kunshan University all the way in China.
Students attending the event had access to various exhibitors from each college, and could enter a virtual “booth”. In this booth, there was the option to view brochures giving information about the colleges, as well as links to videos that further engaged interested students.
Attendees also had the opportunity to be in direct contact with admissions officers via chat. They could ask any questions they had about the college, such as about the admissions process or the majors that they offer.
The admissions officers could then answer any questions they had, and send them links to furthermore personalized information. If requested by the student, a short video chat could even be set up with the admissions officer to further discuss the college.
Students were even given the chance to notify universities that they planned to apply. The fair was a great opportunity for Kellenberg students to get in touch with and gain valuable knowledge about colleges in order to help make the all-important decision.
