Justin BayerFounder, Welcome To College | Twitter
Justin Bayer's passion resides at the intersection of education and technology - more specifically, helping students flourish by creating experiences that leave everyone feeling positive emotion. While attending graduate school at the University of Vermont, he bought the domain, welcometocollege.com. After almost a decade-long career in higher education, Justin founded Welcome to College to revolutionize the college visit experience by allowing prospective students to plan, rate, and share their college visits to help find the best fit. In 2011, Welcome to College launched an interactive, self-aware 1973 GMC RV named MARV that traveled the country to research why students were picking the schools they did. Facing many challenges during the first year on the roads, Justin gained invaluable lessons in business and life. 30,000 miles and counting later, the journey with MARV continues to deliver smiles and surprises while educating students on college fit and has led to many exciting discoveries, most recently: students who have found Meaning, Accomplishment, Relationships, and Vitality (MARV) on campus are the happiest in their college careers and in life.
