Aristotle Circle and Unigo Announce Strategic Partnership to Create College Admissions Boot Camps
OCT 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE)--– Unigo, the web’s largest resource for student-generated college reviews, today announced a multi-year strategic partnership with Aristotle Circle to create a series of live, in-person, 3-day college admissions boot camps. The intensive events will be held several times each year, both domestically and internationally, and will be aimed at giving high school students the tools to succeed in the college search and admissions process.
Unigo and Aristotle Circle will also be launching a suite of college admissions programs for large corporate partners and executives.
Events will take advantage of Unigo’s insider knowledge of the college selection and admissions process and curriculum-building prowess, as well as Aristotle Circle’s network of more than 200 top admissions experts from across the globe. Participants will receive highly customized attention to maximize their chances of getting in, and succeeding, in college.
"Aristotle Circle's goal is to demystify the college admissions process and give families access to the best, most current resources available through our growing network of admissions experts," said Aristotle Circle Founder and CEO, Suzanne Rheault. “This partnership is a natural and powerful fit. Unigo has a wealth of information and is a leader in innovating new ways to reach students. This partnership will equip students with the skills and insights needed to launch rewarding futures."
The development of college admissions boot camps and corporate programs represents the first wave in a variety of collaborations between Unigo and Aristotle Circle, which will include live events, print titles, multimedia projects and more - all with the goal of helping more students prepare for their postsecondary pathways, find the right college, get into the program they want, and ultimately excel in both their classes and their future careers.
“Unigo’s mission is to help students and their families, and this partnership provides us with more opportunities to reach and education them,” said Unigo Founder and CEO, Jordan Goldman. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Aristotle Circle, as their dedication to education and learning is unparalleled.”
Both bootcamp and corporate events will begin rolling out in early 2011.
Unigo.com is the go-to resource for high school students and parents looking for authentic, up-to-date information about America’s colleges. The site features tens of thousands of multi-media, interactive college reviews created by the real experts – current college students. Unigo’s college reviews were described by The New York Times Magazine as “…so evocative they make the one-page U.S. News summaries read like junk mail … they are vivid in a way no guidebook can match,” and The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg called Unigo “…a college information resource built for the age of YouTube and Facebook.”
