Scheduling visits to high schools can be a time-consuming process for both school counselors and admission counselors. That’s why Erica White, former school counselor and now a Product Manager at Hobsons, created RepVisits in 2015. RepVisits brings high schools and college admission counselors together on one website to schedule appointments and organize college fairs.
Hobsons is introducing a new community to help school counselors and college admissions officers network more effectively. We believe that creating close working relationships and simplifying connections between professionals "on both sides of the desk" can be a huge benefit to students. Join us for this webinar to learn more about the Hobsons Counselor Community - what it is, what it means for you and your students, and how you can participate.

AASA, The School Superintendents Association, has partnered with Hobsons to explore ways to support better educational decision-making at each point in the learning lifecycle. Recently, Hobsons conducted a survey with AASA to assess the current state of dual enrollment in US high schools to develop a better understanding on the perceived benefits of such programs and whether they can be an effective indicator for diagnosing student readiness for college. Join us for a free webinar where Dr. David R. Schuler, President of AASA, and Dr. Ellen Wagner, Hobsons’ Vice President of Research, will share results of that survey, and discuss leveraging dual enrollment for accelerating college completion and enhancing career readiness for students.
