Students planning to attend college now have a powerful new online tool that helps make the selection process much easier.

University Visitor’s Network is the complete go-to web destination when it comes to preparing for college, selecting a college, and learning about the lifestyle on campus and the local community.

For the first time, University Visitor’s Network provides the necessary information regarding academics and cost for each school. What makes this site unique is that it also includes a broad palette of photos, videos, and links, painting an informative picture of the lifestyle on campus and the local community, offering the richest and most well-rounded college search profiles available. 1

Tools such as MySchools and MyFriends allow college bound students to create profiles and compare their school choices, post comments, share information and insight with their friends, and link to facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

College bound information is fragmented at best.
The complete resource for the college bound, UVN guides the novice student and their parents through the college process from beginning to end, providing them with everything they need to know. Pages such as Prepare Me for College, For Parents, Financial Services / Scholarships, Study Abroad & Gap Year, Green Scene / Get involved, Campus Shopping, etc, are abundantly populated with videos, articles, blogs, live news feeds, book recommendations, and links to the best website information available, making UVN the complete go-to web destination.

University Visitors Guides Online! UVN houses 23 interactive micro websites of Online University Visitors Guides, extending the reach of the university’s printed magazines.

With a Community Lifestyle Search Tool, UVN provides a local search into the university and community in which the school is located.

Having a more in-depth college search will better inform the students and their parents, guiding them to make more informed decisions as to which colleges or universities they will choose to go visit.

Campus visits are still an important part of the traditional decision-making process for selecting a new school, but now students can get the virtual look and feel for the college’s environment by simply visiting University Visitor’s
