College Signing Day Chat 2020

Twitter Chat

Many schools and communities will host a College Signing Day (or Decision Day) celebration on or around May 1 to celebrate seniors selecting which college they will attend. The goal of the #SigningDayChat is to share best practices for planning and organizing a virtual event. Learn from fellow college access professionals and national partners who have successfully organized virtual events to celebrate their seniors.
