Costa Mesa, Calif. (PRWEB) May 01, 2018
Roadtrip Nation, known for its iconic green RVs and award-winning public television series, today announced the relaunch of collegeconfidential.com, along with a national high school tour. College Confidential, the world's largest college forum, has expanded its mission to empower anyone to get an education that aligns with who they aspire to become. The enhanced website will pair expert guidance with career exploration content, empowering students to more holistically explore educational pathways connecting to careers.
“We’re trying to change the narrative here. It’s not just about college anymore. By combining college planning with a career mindset, we’re making sure that people aren’t going after just any education, but one that supports their ultimate vision for their lives,” said Mike Marriner, co-founder of Roadtrip Nation and New York Times best-selling author of Roadmap: The Get-It-Together Guide for Figuring Out What to Do With Your Life. “We’re partnering with The Princeton Review to help students navigate the complexity of an increasingly complex — and expensive — education landscape, to make choices today that are aligned with who they aspire to become.”
Rooted in the experiences of nearly 40 million students and families who visit College Confidential each year, the website provides real-life insights and expert content to assist students and parents through the college-going process, all through the unique lens of career planning.
As part of its relaunch of College Confidential, Roadtrip Nation has formed a strategic partnership with The Princeton Review which, for more than 35 years, has been trusted by students and families to help them navigate their college and grad school admissions journeys and get into their dream schools. On a weekly basis, The Princeton Review will contribute content to both the Test Prep and Admissions channels of College Confidential, empowering students with their sought-after expertise and resources.
“We are excited to bring The Princeton Review’s world-class content to the College Confidential audience,” said Andy Feld, CEO of The Princeton Review. “Adding our expertise to the advice and stories that students are sharing with each other through this community is a natural fit, and provides students and their families with a broad range of authentic resources.”
Roadtrip Nation and The Princeton Review are also taking their partnership on the road. On May 2, they will kick off their Best Fit Colleges, Best Fit Careers Tour, visiting 25 high schools across the country. Each interactive event is designed to provide high school students and their families with information and resources to help them identify colleges and careers that match their interests and passions, drawn from Roadtrip Nation's career exploration tools and The Princeton Review’s college admissions expertise and services. Each event will include a local leader from the respective community who will share their inspiring college and career story.
