Even College Fairs Take Advantage of Technology



It's Fall and that means college fair time! A few weeks ago someone from the Office of Media and Communications asked us if we wanted to add gotocollege on our flyers and print ads. HUH? So I investigated (because it is part of my job, LOL). Well come to find out, our state college fair association is highly recommending that the colleges and universities buy or rent scanners to be used to scan potential student's information opposed to the traditional pen/postcard way. Well times are sure a-changing! The students go to the site, register and then can print out a bar code. They bring the paper with the bar code to the table and the college scans it and all of their information appears via the bar code. The colleges take the scanner back to their university and uploads the files and sends the prospective student more information about their institution. How do you like that? Well we will see how this turns out...

Enjoy! I think...
