CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - Newegg Inc., the leading electronics-focused e-retailer in the United States, today announced that it is kicking off its 2012 Newegg College Tour. In the next two months, the Newegg team will visit more than 100 schools across the United States, including colleges in California, Oregon, Arizona, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington DC, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Florida.
The 2012 Newegg College Tour is sponsored by Microsoft, Canon, Antec, Parallels, Seagate and Rosewill. The tour will give college students the opportunity to learn more about this year's sponsors, as well as take home some free Newegg swag. This year's tour will also feature a photo booth where students can take photos and share them directly with their friends via Facebook and Twitter. Furthermore, many of the students will have a bit of fun while they check out Newegg on campus -- they can listen to music spun by a DJ and participate in raffles to win prizes.
"We are excited to bring Newegg to colleges across the United States," said Bob Bellack, CEO of Newegg North America. "This is a rare opportunity for us to engage face-to-face with college students and get their feedback on back-to-school technology essentials."
In addition to the tour, Newegg will award nearly $30,000 worth of prizes through its Pimp Your Dorm Room Sweepstakes, which is being sponsored by Intel and Dell. Newegg will be giving away ultimate room makeovers that include hot items such as an ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A-DB71 Ultrabook, LG 50" Plasma HDTV, Canon Rebel T4i Digital SLR Camera, Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Student, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4, and Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect bundle.
