6×6 Virtual College Fairs February and March 2021 

We are pleased to announce that OACAC will once again be partnering with StriveScan to host virtual college fairs in February and MarchWhile in the fall we took advantage of 45-minute information sessions, this spring we look to provide college fairs for students, families, and counselors. StriveScan’s 6×6 Virtual College Fair format exposes students to a wide range of colleges in a lively and safe environment. In addition, we will be hosting up to 12 panels in March.

Since last spring, StriveScan has hosted virtual college fairs and other virtual college admission programs nationwide, with over 300,000 students and 2,000 colleges and universities participating. We are partnering with StriveScan to create a unique opportunity for colleges, universities and organizations to connect with counselors, parents and students in our state.
