In addition, NACAC's extensive outreach to secondary school counselors and robust digital marketing to students and parents ensure that thousands of motivated students attend each fair.
Built for Students
NACAC Virtual College Fairs are designed to be intuitive, informative, interactive, and fun as they support students through the college search process.
Especially during these uncertain times, the virtual fairs are a welcome reminder that a future that includes college is important.
A point of pride: More than 93 percent of attendees rate NACAC fairs as "excellent" or "good." Student comments include phrases such as "That was fun" and "This was just great – thank you for opening up this space so we can interact with our colleges and find new ones."
College and university exhibitors are a huge part of this success. It takes time and work to create engaging experiences for students. We appreciate your efforts to provide a meaningful way for a broad range of students to connect with your institution.
