The Princeton Review holds free SAT Strategy Session events in the virtual world of Second Life on Jan. 19 and Jan. 31.

The Second Life sessions are the company’s first step into the virtual world to help students learn more about the SAT. Second Life is an online world where users can create a virtual likeness (an avatar) and interact with users from around the world.

The Princeton Review teamed up with Ohio University for the Second Life event. The SAT sessions will take place in a special event tent on Ohio University's Second Life Virtual Campus. Information kiosks will be set up around the Second Life world where avatars can accumulate free virtual collectibles, information about The Princeton Review, and event dates.

To participate, avatars can travel around the Second Life world and to the SAT event tent in free virtual Princeton Review roadsters.

The Second Life SAT strategy sessions are scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 19 at 4 p.m. eastern time and Thursday, Jan. 31 at 8 p.m. eastern time. Each event will include a 15-20 minute presentation followed by a question and answer session and will feature two Princeton Review teachers in virtual form.

Information about the SAT (including test dates and content, sample questions and answers) and general information about the SAT, ACT, and the college admissions process will be covered.

The virtual SAT strategy sessions at Ohio University’s Second Life Virtual Campus can be found at www.princetonreview.com/secondlife. The campus also can be located by searching for Ohio University in Second Life (www.secondlife.com).
