Radio, Web and in-person events combine to deliver powerful search and planning tools for college

DALLAS, Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

The Tom Joyner Virtual College Fair and MetroPCS Communications, Inc. this year are offering both online and live resources to connect college-bound students and their parents with schools and universities across the country.

The website, www.TomJoynerCollegeFair.com, is the brainchild of nationally syndicated radio host and philanthropist, Tom Joyner. The site encourages all potential higher-education students to pursue a degree and contains important information from more than 84 participating schools. Listeners of the Tom Joyner Morning Show can access the site through BlackAmericaWeb.com.

"College shouldn't be an option," said Joyner. "It's a necessity in today's world and the virtual college fair makes the first step more accessible than ever to the audience that's most important to me."

Tom Joyner Virtual College Fair offers students and parents critical information about the admission process, financial aid, housing and student life from the country's leading Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) through a highly interactive website. Participating HBCUs include Cheyney University of Pennsylvania, North Carolina A&T, Lane College and Prairie View A&M, as well as traditional colleges who have placed an emphasis on wanting minority students to succeed in their higher education pursuits like West Point Academy, University of South Florida and the University of Iowa.

As a presenting sponsor, MetroPCS is helping to fuel the success of the website that last year had more than 200,000 online visitors and more than 80 participating schools

"We're excited to partner with Tom Joyner Virtual College Fair and provide access to vitally important college information that will affect lives and shape futures for years to come," said Tom Keys, president and COO of MetroPCS. "Offering information about choosing the right school and being equipped with the right tools to succeed is just one way that we're delivering education for all of our customers and others within the communities in which we serve."

Tom Joyner Virtual College Fair and MetroPCS will expand the reach of the online site to in-person events in cities across the country including Atlanta, Dallas, Jacksonville, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia and Southern Michigan.
