College Campus Experience

Each year on a one-day bi-monthly or on a 4-day trip students have the opportunity to tour college campuses, attend admissions presentations, and potentially meet and ask questions of college faculty and students. The college tours give students an opportunity to learn about the different types of educational institutions, academic programs, campus life, and admission requirements. By taking advantage of this opportunity, students learn the benefit of successfully preparing for post-secondary education. 

You’ll Get To…

Guided tours of each campus are led by current students who share their own experiences and provide details about programs and services.
Each day, our expert tour leaders will assist students to review and process their experiences and to prepare for the next day.
On most of our tours, we stay one or two nights in a residence hall (dorm) on one of the campuses. This provides students a unique sense of what living in a college residence hall will be like.
Information session are hosted by an admissions officer who provides a broad overview of the college, its academic and extracurricular opportunities.
In addition to the actual college visits, participants always comment about how much they enjoyed interacting with other students from various international schools around the world.
