UPDATE: SESSIONS ARE CONTINUING THROUGH MAY 8
Strive Scan ( a software company that works with admissions officers at college fairs) has put together a week of virtual presentations for high school juniors. There are lots of presentations to attend. They are held via Zoom. It is advisable that parents register for their child using the child's information not the parents.
Once students are registered, they will receive a confirmation email with their unique link to join the Zoom webinar. When a student registers, they are sharing their registration information ONLY with the colleges presenting on the panel they are attending. Strive Scan does not share any personal information with other third parties. I have no relationship with Strive Scan. They have put together some great content that would be worth a look.
This is one week only and they have over 100 presentations. A link to the list is below. An example of a few sessions are:

Located in the heart of Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, Emmanuel College, Massachusetts College of Art & Design, MCPHS University, Simmons University, and Wentworth Institute of Technology form the collaboration which allows students to cross-register for courses, participate in shared events and programs, including Intramurals and Performing Arts, and use the resources of five different institutions.
