CollegeWeekLive, an online destination for college admissions events, will be hosting ColllegeWeekLive MILITARY STUDENT DAY. The free event is designed to provide an easy convenient way for active and retired service members and their families to chat with college admissions representatives and learn more about beginning or continuing a college career.

CollegeWeekLive MILITARY STUDENT DAY offers active and retired military an opportunity to connect with admissions reps from as many as sixty colleges and features live video presentations and Q&A on topics such as the “Transitioning Process” led by Donald Campbell from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Veterans Upward Bound Program, or a keynote on the “GI Bill” led by a National Guard executive. Greg Eisenbarth, Executive Director of MilitaryMBA.com, will present on the benefits of a “Military MBA” while Terri Hernandez from the University of Louisville will discuss “An Update to Active Duty Tuition Assistance Rates.”

A panel of Tillman Scholars will feature an exchange between students from Arizona State University while Charles B. Reed, Chancellor of the California State University system, is slated to welcome attendees to explore the campuses of Cal State at the free online college admissions event.

Several leading organizations affiliated with military service will be extending an invitation to their members to attend the event, including Hire Heroes USA, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans Association (IAVA), Marines 4 Life, Marines Leadership Scholars Program, MilitaryConnections.com, MilitaryExits.com, MilitaryMBA.com, National Association of Veterans Upward Bound, the National Guard, National Veterans Foundation, the Pat Tillman Foundation, Student Veterans of America, and TAOnline.com.

CollegeWeekLive MILITARY STUDENT DAY provides a valuable alternative for current military personnel on bases around the world for whom it may be challenging or impossible to tour colleges.

Veterans may find it difficult to learn about the benefits available to them and their family.” – Robert Rosenbloom President CEO CollegeWeekLive

We hope that CollegeWeekLive MILITARY STUDENT DAY will help them learn about the college application process, chat live with admissions reps at schools of interest and also learn firsthand how other veterans have successfully transitioned to life on campus,” he said.

Admissions representatives from sixty colleges, ranging from Ivy League institutions including Dartmouth College and Princeton University to state schools such as Arizona State and Washington State and the California State system to private universities such as Drexel University and Duquesne University will be available to meet live online with those who login on December 1st.
