The college admission for fall season has started. This also marks the stressed out time in the life of a student. The competition for getting into the right college and availing scholarship can cause nerve wrecking situation for both, the parents and the students. To overcome this phase of anxiety, HP has offered some relief to students with educational incentives at the world’s largest online college admission fair called the CollegeWeekLive.
Around 60,000 students had connected online with Admission Representatives from 300 Colleges for free on CollegeWeekLive website during 2nd and 3rd of November. On this website, students were also able to chat live with admission representatives from a wide range of colleges, public and small private universities, Ivy League institutions, and regional leaders in the field of higher education. They got a good idea of campus life by watching students' webcasting live, and by sharing details related to a student's life.
HP had also provided additional incentives to students during this free online college fair, so that they can learn more about higher education. High school students, who had attended this free online college admissions event, were also able to register for HP Academy to get a chance to win one of the three HP computers - HP Pavilion dm4, HP Pavilion dv6 and the HP Envy Beats Edition. The students, who registered on HP Academy, could save money as HP provided education discounts and deals. "AT HP, we feel it is important to provide all students regardless of geographic location with the opportunity to explore a college education," said Manvir Sandhu, director, marketing and e-commerce at Hewlett-Packard.
Such additional incentives prove to be of a great boon for the aspiring students, who want to pursue higher education. Other major companies should also follow HP’s example to provide educational incentives to help students during college admissions.
