StriveScan’s Connect Virtual College Fair
In a StriveScan Connect virtual fair, each institution receives its own Zoom Meeting room to host. Students are presented with the list of colleges participating in the fair and simply click on a college’s name to join their meeting.
For representatives, the virtual meeting is exclusive just for your institution. There is no set agenda you must follow. Some reps may just answer questions, others may give presentations.
Students may drop into your room throughout the fair. They will be able to unmutue, turn on their cameras, and/or type questions via the chat.
Colleges will receive the data of every student that joins their meeting.

The duration of your session and if runs the duration of the fair or just for part of it, depends on the specific’s fair’s arrangement.
