Exciting New Virtual College Exploration
Fall 2020 College Fair Canceled. The in-person Medina County College/Tech/Trade Fair that was scheduled for October 7, 2020, has been canceled due to the pandemic. 

Exciting New Offering! In its place, the Ohio Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC) is partnering with StriveScan to provide a statewide Virtual College Exploration program this fall.
  • OACAC member institutions will present college knowledge sessions on such topics as finding a college that fits, choosing a major, navigating financial aid, and tips for writing a college essay.
  • The program will also feature 170 individual information sessions from a variety of colleges and universities that will offer a "deeper dive" into a specific college and allow them to convey more information than can be done at a traditional in-person college fair.
The three-part goal of the OACAC/StriveScan Virtual College Exploration program is to: 1) provide students with a wealth of college search information; 2) allow students to browse and learn about different colleges; and 3) give students an opportunity to ask questions of admissions counselors in a safe, flexible, online format.

Sessions will run for four weeks, Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The dates are as follows:
  • September 13-25:  College Knowledge Sessions
  • September 14-October 1 and October 26-November 13:  Individual Information Sessions
Additionally, the 45-minute sessions will be recorded so that students can watch them later on-demand. 

It's shaping up to be a fantastic, multi-week program with 200 institutions (62 from Ohio) presenting on a variety of topics, as well as their own information sessions!  ~ Zachary George, Director of College and Fair Relations, StriveScan

Registration. Registration is NOW OPEN at https://oacac.org/student-registration/. After registering, students will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the selected session via Zoom. Registration is FREE, and all sessions will be secure. 

Looking to the Future. The ESC of Medina County is tentatively planning to hold an in-person College/Tech/Trade Fair in March or April 2021. More information will be forthcoming as soon as it becomes available.
