Dayton, OH – Four recent ENT graduates from the University of Dayton are set to launch a college road trip across America, with local tech startup business Welcome to College. The team, including Jim Pappadakes, Mike Suman, Joe Guy, and Jim Saywell, will travel in style via a 1973 GMC RV named MARV, aka Mobile Automated Research Vehicle. Students can determine which rival school MARV will stop at by casting their vote and getting a chance to win up to $2,500 in scholarship funds from Welcome to College!
Welcome to College is a web-based application that revolutionizes the college visit experience. Their mission and passion is to help students and parents connect with the colleges and universities that are right for them. MARV and team plan to hit the road June 1st, 2011.
