College Information Sessions & Open Houses
New Jersey Virtual College Exploration Program
NJACAC is proud to present the New Jersey Virtual College Exploration Program, which will run from September 29-October 9.
The multi-week program consists of hundreds of opportunities for students to learn about the college search process and about many different colleges through panel presentations and information sessions.
Students will gain a wealth of college knowledge, get exposure to a variety of colleges, and have the opportunity to ask questions of admission counselors, all in a safe, flexible, online environment.
All high school students, parents, and counselors throughout New Jersey are all welcome to attend. Participation is free of cost.
Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available on the NJACAC website later.

Students should register for each session that they want to attend. Once they register, they will receive a confirmation email with their unique link to join the Zoom webinar.
(Students will also receive a barcode, but the barcode is not necessary for this virtual event.) When students register, they are sharing their registration information only with colleges presenting on that particular panel. StriveScan does not sell or share personally identifiable student information with any other third parties.
Students should participate live so they can ask questions and interact with the college admission counselors. If students are unable to attend live, we still encourage them to register for the sessions they are interested in and recordings will be available here later.

Greetings from Middlebury! On both sides of the college counseling desk, we have had to reimagine what traditional “school visits” look like. In an effort to reduce stress on students and Zoom fatigue for us all, our staff at Middlebury has come up with what we hope will be several interesting ways that students and counselors can be in contact with us this fall. Please share this information with any students you feel would benefit from getting to know Middlebury better.
Connect with me: In lieu of in-person school visits and as a way to reduce the number of virtual school visits, we have created opportunities for students to connect with their regional admissions counselor. Please find your regional admissions counselor here and click on their name to see their available meeting times. Your counselor’s link may be useful to post in Naviance, or whatever software you may use to connect your students with colleges and universities. These casual 30-45 minute sessions will feature some basic information about Middlebury (and sometimes a guest appearance from a current student) and provide students with a space to ask questions about Middlebury and the college application process as they would if we were meeting face to face at your schools.
“Join our Journey” and hear directly from Middebury seniors: Several times each week, we are offering opportunities for you to join our Senior Admissions Fellows as they reflect on their own inspiring journeys to and through Middlebury. Most of each session will be devoted to answering student questions. As a complement to these online sessions, we also suggest watching this recorded 30-minute informational presentation about Middlebury College.
Watch a Wednesday Webinar: Covering a different topic each week, our weekly Wednesday Webinars feature admissions counselors, current students, alumni, staff, and faculty members who are happy to speak about their varied Middlebury experiences and answer questions from prospective students and their families. You can find recordings of past webinars here.
Chat one-on-one: We are always more than happy to connect with students and/or counselors one-on-one via phone or a Zoom call. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can assist you in any way!
Discover Middlebury is typically a “fly-in” program that provides a full travel scholarship to campus for its participants. This year, in the interest of everyone’s health and safety, Discover Middlebury will be a virtual event. Many hours of virtual programming will be available for participants over the week of October 11th. This programming will offer a window into student and academic life at Middlebury. Events will include opportunities to engage with program participants, current students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
Discover Middlebury is open to seniors from traditionally underrepresented groups: African American, Latinx, Asian American, and American Indian students; students with demonstrated financial hardship; and students who will be first in their families to attend college. The deadline to apply is September 14th, 2020.

Welcome to Coast to Coast, a joint travel partnership among Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Princeton University, University of California-Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University. Because each of our institutions practices holistic admissions within a highly selective environment, we have partnered to offer insight into the seemingly complex admissions process. We hope you will join us for the program most convenient for you.
Please note, the Coast to Coast program is intended to be an introduction to each of our institutions, as well as a discussion on holistic admission, financial aid and admission in the time of COVID. The last portion of the program includes question and answer. For more specific information about our institutions, please visit our websites or arrange a virtual visit.
