CollegeWeekLive, World's Largest Virtual College Fair Starts Tomorrow

50,000 Attendees to Connect via Web With Hundreds of Universities, and College Planning Experts Through Virtual Booths, Live Chat, and Real-Time Video at This Free Online Event

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2008) - Tomorrow and Wednesday, an anticipated 50,000 attendees from 40+ countries will log onto the World Wide Web tomorrow (March 25 and 26, 2008 -- from 12:00 PM to 11:00 PM EDT) to participate in CollegeWeekLive (http://www.collegeweeklive.com), the largest-ever virtual college fair.

Designed to foster connections that are impossible in the physical world, the online environment of CollegeWeekLive leverages the latest in Web technologies to give college-bound high school students, parents, and guidance counselors a fun, eco-friendly supplement or alternative to the conventional College Road Trip -- in which families must fly or drive from campus to campus.

This free 2-day long online event will let attendees:

-- Visit virtual booths of participating colleges and universities featuring electronic brochures, videos, webinars, podcasts, and school-specific presentations.

-- Interact through real-time text chat and video chat with 300+ admissions counselors from these schools.

-- Participate in live interactive video chats with 60 current undergraduates to gain a view of campus life from insiders, in the know.

-- Engage with successful young professionals who will share career insights on their personal experiences in a range of fields.

-- Benefit from an unprecedented agenda of live presentations from top experts on how to choose, get into, and afford to attend, the college or university of their choice. Participants can then ask their own questions of the experts.
