WACAC Fairs

WACAC’s annual College Fairs provides students with the opportunity to meet representatives from colleges and universities from all over the country and beyond. We are excited to announce that Western Association for College Admission Counseling will be partnering with StriveScan to host multiple virtual fairs in place of our in-person events this fall. This virtual format exposes students to a wide range of colleges, while still being time- and cost-efficient for our Member Colleges and Universities!

StriveScan hosted their nationwide Strive Virtual College Exploration program this spring and it was an overwhelming success with over 180,000 students and 500 colleges and universities from around the world. We are partnering with StriveScan to bring a more tailored version of this program to our College and University Members that is designed to serve the students in regions of California and Nevada.
