Smart College Visit’s long-running Twitter chat, #CampusChat, is the go-to weekly discussion for all things admissions and scholarships. Hosted by SCV writers with invited guests such as Sallie Mae, CampusChat has garnered millions of impressions on Twitter over the years, and helped countless students and families navigate the college admissions process.
For the majority of its 6-year history, CampusChat was held in the evenings. At the beginning of 2016, we moved it to a daytime time-slot.

Jodi Okun, founder of College Financial Aid Advisors, says “Parents and students need to be on Twitter every Thursday night. At 8pm ET, #CollegeCash kicks off the college conversation with a new topic every week. #CampusChat will continue the college conversation for parents and students with its new time. A big #ThrillsThursday welcome to SCV!”
