Dear Counselor,

NACAC is offering four virtual college fairs for students this fall. Would you help us get the word out?

Below are promotional materials β€• with downloadable graphics and sample text ― to assist you. Please encourage students and parents to sign up at virtualcollegefairs.org.

We can't thank you enough for your help in letting students know about this unparalleled opportunity to explore their options and get started on their college dreams. 

Sincerely,
NACAC Virtual College Fairs team 


P.S. β€• In case you missed it, here are videos from the NACAC Meet-Up for counselors. They were created as part of the first virtual fair and provide timely information about important counseling and admission topics. We hope you find them helpful!
