Newegg College Tour Welcomes College Students Back to School

Company to Visit 80 Campuses During Two-month Campaign to Engage College
Students

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#BackToSchoolNewegg
– the leading tech-focused e-retailer in North America – is hitting the
road this summer to visit college campuses across the country. Newegg’s
College Tour coincides with back-to-school activities at 80 top
universities, giving hundreds of thousands of new and returning college
students the opportunity to get their hands on the latest technology,
and to test their ability to Game Like a Pro.


Newegg has long been committed to serving the needs of college students.
The company not only offers the best tech products for academically
minded individuals, but also great deals on new and used textbooks. All

McIntosh, Newegg’s SVP of Sales & Marketing. “Our College Tour lets us
engage with them directly, put the latest tech in their hands and have
some fun.”

The tour features a 10×20-foot tent complete with live DJ and a gaming
lounge where gamers can see the latest in gaming tech. Attendees will be
eligible to enter Newegg’s Game Like a Pro eSports tournament, hosted by
