#WhyApply Social Media Campaign

Help ACAC kick off the college application season by participating in #WhyApply (to college) Day on Friday, September 16, 2022.

ACAC encourages everyone to use the hashtag #WhyApply and share on social media why it’s important to apply to college. Though state campaigns and local events will run from September through December, the goal of #WhyApply Day is to celebrate the season and encourage students as they begin the application process.

National Convening

Each year, the American College Application Campaign team coordinates a national convening, typically in May. The goals of the national convening are to:

  • Provide a collaborative, discussion-driven opportunity for ACAC state coordinators to share and learn effective practices and strategies for implementing a College Application Campaign program.
  • Educate states on the resources, training, and guidance ACAC can provide as each state implements the initiative.

One representative per state, typically the state coordinator, is invited to participate.

If you have any questions about the National Convening, please contact ACAC at

In order to inform opinion leaders and college access practitioners, the ACAC team presents regularly at national, regional, and state conferences. If you are hosting a conference and would like to include a plenary or breakout session on the Campaign, contact us at​.
