College Tours

College-bound students experience multiple campuses to increase awareness and enhance their exploration process. Campus visits effectively provide an educational experience and information not found in brochures online. Students make one of the most important decisions of their lives and understand each college’s mission and atmosphere while interacting on campus.

Middle School Introduction Trips

Middle School students can combine a visit to an vibrant college campus along with their cultural and historical trip. Younger students will get exited about going to college and see where historical leaders began their university journeys. Motivating middle school students to expand their vision makes college visits an incredible opportunity.

High School college visits

Turn applying to college into a rewarding and amazing experience. Expert admission counselors, guidance counselors and staff guide each trip through multiple experiences as each student has a first hand look and experiences college life.
