Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 18, 2009

CollegeWeekLive, the world's largest college fair, is pleased to announce that the University of California system will be hosting a virtual college fair through CollegeWeekLive for prospective students specifically interested in attending a school within the University of California system. The only event is free for students, parents and guidance counselors. CollegeWeekLive's University of California Day, is slated for Thursday October 1st from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM Pacific Time. Participating University of California schools include: Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, and San Diego.

CollegeWeekLive events, which meet several times a year online and which are free to attend, make the college admissions process easier by eliminating the usual obstacles of cost and distance from the college search for high school students and their families. The CollegeWeekLive University of California Day will feature virtual booths for each university within the UC system designed to address different aspects of student life at each of the schools, such as admissions, academics, athletics, financial aid and campus housing. Attendees can also participate in any of several live video webcam sessions with currently enrolled students from the different UC system schools to get a more informal take on collegiate life.

"CollegeWeekLive University of California Day enables us to extend our reach to students interested in exploring a UC school for their college education," said Bob Patterson, Deputy Director, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, University of California, Berkeley. "Now students and parents can get a taste for what a UC education is all about without incurring travel and hotel expenses by visiting with us virtually--something that makes good sense in this tight economy."

"We have found participating in CollegeWeekLive events an effective way to reach prospective students online, said Emily Engelschall, Director of Undergraduate Recruitment, University of California Riverside. "WE are excited to be a part of a dedicated University of California day at CollegeWeekLive."
