Got College Life Questions? Tune in to Our College Confessionals Webcast Series!

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

Majors. Dorms. Roommates. Campuses. Internships. College will probably be one of the most exciting times of your life, but when you're a high school student, the prospect of choosing the college that is right for you (and getting in!) can be beyond nerve-wracking. How do college experiences vary between big state schools, Ivy Leagues, small liberal arts colleges and technical schools? How will college be different from high school? What tricks of the trade can help you make the most out of these next four years?

Fear not, pre-collegiettes! Her Campus has teamed up with McDonald's to answer all of your burning questions during a two-session live “College Confessionals” webcast series featuring undergraduates from 4 different campuses and moderated by Her Campus co-founder Annie Wang (that’s me)!

During each of our two one-hour long webcasts, you’ll hear from real students who currently attend Harvard University, University of California Los Angeles, Stony Brook University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. They’ll share their experiences and demystify what college is all about. We’ll cover topics including the application process, campus life, academics and how college compares to high school.

Our two webcasts are scheduled for 8-9 PM EST on September 13, 2015 and 7-8 PM EST on September 23, 2015. We’ll be using Google Hangouts to stream the webcasts, which means YOU can submit your own questions in advance for our collegiette panelists to answer! Simply create a Google+ account and send your questions through the broadcast pages, located here for our September 13 webcast, and here for our September 23 webcast. Here’s how:

  • Once you’ve created your account, navigate to either of the event pages (September 13, September 23)
  • Click “Q&A” in the top right corner of the webcast screen
  • Click “Ask a new question” in the bottom right corner of the pop-up screen
  • Type in your question!
  • If you see that someone else has already asked your question in the question feed, simply click the plus sign (+) within the question box to indicate that you also want this question answered. The number next to the (+) sign indicates how many people have liked it. The higher that number is, the more likely it is that I (Annie) will select that question to ask during the webcast! 

Then, sign in to the webcast at 8 PM EST on September 13, 2015 and 7 PM EST on September 23, 2015 and hear your questions answered live! We’ll be covering the same topics during both webcasts, so feel free to attend whichever session fits your schedule better!

Her Campus is proud to be partnering with McDonald’s, a company that has demonstrated its support for high school students pursuing higher education through programs like the McDonald’s Education Workshops for Asian-American students and now, Her Campus’s College Confessionals! In addition, McDonald’s has awarded over $56 million in scholarship funds since 1985 for pre-collegiettes everywhere through the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) scholarship program. These scholarships are offered to students with financial need who have demonstrated academic achievement, leadership and community involvement, which means ambitious pre-collegiettes like you are just who they’re looking for! Plus, several of the scholarships are also specifically catered toward minority applicants. Think you might be eligible? Learn more about the Ronald McDonald House Charities scholarships.
