  • (1888PressRelease) November 12, 2010 - For the second time, has drawn over 600 new students to its latest college fair with Sacred Heart University.

    "We are thrilled to be involved in these on-line events with," said Mike Tarantino, Admission Representative for Sacred Heart University. "These events take no time to set up and in just a few short weeks we reached students from all around the country, and even a few from around the world. All we really did was pick a date, send out a few emails, and did the rest. It couldn't have been any easier." launched its virtual fair feature only recently and has had quite a bit of interest from colleges and universities looking to hold their own events. Unlike other on-line events, a event can be held as a one-on-one event, which means the students get to speak directly with the colleges they are interested in. For colleges, it is the ideal venue to meet students interested in them without having to spend thousands of dollars in up front charges without any guarantee of meeting students interested in their school. Following the fair, all participants are able to have follow up through the website, which provides both colleges and students free access to each other for an unlimited time.

    "This is going to revolutionize the way colleges and students interact," said Mike Rosich, Director of Social Media and I.T. for "Our goal is to have high schools set up their own virtual fairs with the colleges in their area or hold an event with one of our participating schools. While nothing can replace the one-on-one interaction of a college representative with a student, this comes as close as possible without the burden or cost of travel. It is all about putting students and colleges together in the most productive way." not only offers colleges/universities the opportunity to find students who are a good fit for their institution, it offers assistance with setting up, integrating, and maintaining social media into their recruitment strategies. This includes the ability to send targeted emails; search for students interested in a particular school, and of course, run live virtual one-on-one college information sessions. Their goal is to provide an easy to use and well-integrated system of student recruitment at a low cost.
