Intersect by Hobsons Celebrates a Record Year for College Access via RepVisits
Nearly 200,000 Higher Education Admission Counselor Visits to High Schools Scheduled via RepVisits in the 2017-18 School Year
PALM DESERT, CA - July 18, 2018 - Hobsons, the education technology leader and company behind Intersect, is pleased to announce that a record number of higher education and high school users have utilized RepVisits throughout the 2017-18 school year. This year alone, over 11,000 higher education users and almost 3,000 high schools utilized RepVisits to facilitate more college admission counselor visits to provide important information to their students.
RepVisits is a free tool to help high schools manage the college visit process. High schools have the ability to publish their visit availability so college admissions counselors can schedule visits without the time-consuming back and forth communication typically required. This year alone, users scheduled almost 200,000 appointments using RepVisits. This represents an over 200% increase since the 2016-17 school year.
“RepVisits has experienced exponential growth over the last year since becoming part of the Hobsons family,” said Erica White, RepVisits founder and Director of Product Management for Intersect by Hobsons. “We are extremely proud to support so many high school and higher education users and look forward to continually expanding our user base to make it easier for students and higher education institutions to connect.”
Naviance high schools can access RepVisits through the Counselor Community within their Naviance account. Non-Naviance high schools and higher education representatives can create a free RepVisits account at counselorcommunity.com.
