How to Choose a College: Making College Choices During COVID, Webinar held 11/11/2020
Calling all Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors! COVID-19 has impacted everyone and everything, including the college evaluation process – not only for this application season but for the next few application seasons (at least!). More and more colleges are going test-optional or test-blind each day (www.FairTest.org). Because of this colleges will evaluate applicants differently, paying closer attention to other areas like activities, community involvement, essays, demonstrated interest, unique talents/skills, and working to evaluate a student’s character – what makes them unique over other applicants?
In this free webinar, we will show you how to efficiently and effectively use LifeStream Digital Memory Box, and show you how you can create a LifeStream portfolio admission professionals want to see (HINT: You don’t need a lot to make a positive impact!).

Recruiting Redefined: Playing in the New Landscape, Webinars held 12/15/2020 & 12/17/2020
Recruiting has changed, and the way to communicate with the coaches and recruiting staff has changed dramatically. There are over 8 million high school athletes and only 400 thousand play in college. Now, that number has decreased – not because the colleges are decreasing sports but because the student-athletes do not know how to find the perfect fit for themselves and their athletic talent, especially during COVID-19.
This two-part series will help parents and student-athletes learn how recruiting has been redefined and how to play in a new landscape finding the best college both academically and athletically.
