Teens Invited To Chat Live With Texas A&M At CollegeWeekLive Texas Day

Teens wanting to know more about attending a college or university in general, and specifically about attending Texas A&M University, can chat online Wednesday (May 9) with admissions and financial aid representatives at the “CollegeWeekLive” Texas Day college fair for prospective students.

Texas Day is one of the major “virtual” recruiting fairs of the year targeting future students and parents in Texas. The online college fair chat times are planned from 4 to 8 p.m. (CT) Wednesday. Teens and their parents from across the Lone Star State can chat online with Texas A&M admissions and financial aid representatives during that time.

Prospective students can ask questions about what it’s like to be an Aggie, while parents can ask about admission requirements or financial aid. In addition, they also can watch live keynote presentations from admissions authorities on topics such as “the college application process” and “how to pay for a college in today’s economy.”

“This is a great opportunity of Texas A&M counselors to interact with students who have been admitted for the fall 2012 semester as well as reach out to rising seniors to better prepare them for the upcoming admission season,” notes Brandie Eneks, assistant director of admissions at Texas A&M.

“CollegeWeekLive,” free for students, parents and guidance counselors, has become the leading platform for online admissions by providing the world’s largest college fairs and online admissions events. “CollegeWeekLive,” with hundreds of colleges and universities exhibiting nationally and with more than 200,000 registrants, has revolutionized college admissions, officials say. It is making the process easier and more cost-effective by bringing students, parents, counselors and colleges together online, they explain. This allows prospective college students to “visit” colleges and universities, and talk to admissions officials and current college students no matter what time or distance constraints they might have.

Students or parents can register for the Texas A&M “CollegeWeekLive” event at no charge. Those who participate can also enter to win a $1,000 scholarship from “CollegeWeekLive.”
