CollegeWeekLive (http://www. collegeweeklive. com (http://www. collegeweeklive. com)), today announced that it has opened online registration for its Fall virtual college fair, which will take place on November 12 and 13, 2008. CollegeWeekLive connects thousands of high school students and their parents with hundreds of colleges around the world through a live, interactive online environment. The CWL experience offers unparalleled content to help students plan for, get into, pay for, and attend college, featuring 60+ live video sessions with college experts, current students, and college admissions counselors.
Featured in Newsweek, The New York Times, Seventeen, The International Herald Tribune, and USA Today, CollegeWeekLive has been described as "The Green College Road Trip." CollegeWeekLive enables admissions officers to experience all of the benefits of a physical fair - meeting students and parents - without travel and leaving no carbon footprint.
