Good Morning TACRAO

There are important deadlines approaching your admissions and recruitment teams associated with the TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series:

Virtual College or University Booth                        September 7th

  *   Why is this important?  In order to participate in the TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series, a series that includes more than 300 "virtual college fairs", your college or university needs to have your college/university booth ready to view during Booth Preview.
  *   This year is different!  There is no flexibility to just virtually "show-up" at a  a college fair if you do not have a booth - please create your booth for our students in Texas.
  *   Each college or university ONLY needs one booth for the entire series or college fair season.
  *   Remember that during the entire season both high school and transfer students will be participating.  Don't forget to include information for both.

Virtual College or University Booth Preview              September 8th - 9th

  *   What is booth preview?  Booth preview is the time period in which you and members of your admissions and/or recruitment team will be able to view your booth live on the platform and determine if the information, videos, and more that you selected display and provide the virtual experience you want to share with students, families, and counselors.
  *   How many college fair booth have been created to date?  As of 6:30am, September 3 - there are 263 booth completed or in progress - what an opportunity for our students across the state - but we still need you Texas Schools!

TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series Opens for Students to Pre-Register and Explore                September 10th

  *   What does this mean?  On Thursday, September 10th, all booths will be visible to any person, along with a searchable list, that has the TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series link:  https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__falltacrao.swoogo.com_2020Virtual&d=DwIFAg&c=oqyuZuih6ykib6aKiBq22_bich4AVfYGoLertJN0bEc&r=5cwyr3ZZzjmRsIsXglBYqQ&m=qx0qDCzI2s6Sn7gRFZilzEoktuSuT5l6WF3L9PIlzEc&s=041wm_Bs-FTwMLIfR8lcEC3l5e6dvIs40mC2K-FkQEY&e= <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__falltacrao.swoogo.com_2020Virtual&d=DwMFAg&c=oqyuZuih6ykib6aKiBq22_bich4AVfYGoLertJN0bEc&r=5cwyr3ZZzjmRsIsXglBYqQ&m=UuhAm8AVYQe5BdHkNVfHkbB8y9Xx9r5iwbHeo5wwfPI&s=EYTUBSkyIwJQ9yhD52FICN_4KxXbPJRm1n0x_u_tbcg&e=>
  *   Is the site live now? Yes, the site is live now.  If you were to share the link, students could register and view the site, but remember the site is still under construction and we are asking to minimize a student's interaction with an incomplete site.

GoToCollegeFair Webinar for the TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series Participants (College and University Reps)                   September 8th time TBD

  *   You asked!  We are currently working with our partners at GTCF finalize a time, but mark your calendar for September 8th!

TACRAO Virtual College Fair Series Season Opens   September 14th

  *   Dallas Week 1 and Southest Texas kick off our college fair season.
  *   How do we know how many will participate?  The HSR Committee will keep TACRAO and the college and university participants up-to-date on the totally number of registrants. While this will not be an exact number that will connect with your in your particular booth, it will continue to give you an idea throughout the entire college fair series how many students, family members or high school/college counselors register and plan to participate.
  *   Don't forget...your institution has a dashboard to track your students as well.

SUGGESTION:  Participate in the entire series even if your college or university did not do this in the past!

  *   While not all of us have traditionally participated in every week of TACRAO when fairs were in person for a variety of reason, again, this year is different!
  *   Your booth will be available 24/7 during the series for students and families to visit for the first time or for the 100th time.
  *   Your institution has the flexibility to place a schedule in your booth of when you will be available for chat or live presentations.  Yes ideally, you want to be available, but it is understandable that it just might not be possible.
  *   Don't think about the season as 300+ individual college fairs where you had multiple fairs happening at in multiple locations in a specific region and across the state.  The best way to think about this is that the Regional HSR Committee members were able to bring multiple schools and fairs together at specific times to optimize your time.

We are all in uncharted territory trying to ease anxiety for our senior class of 2021 and our transfer students.

Have a wonderful day and I hope everyone is experience a great start to the academic year!
