Purpose of Tours
The purpose of these trips is to assist students with identifying postsecondary options consistent with their interests, abilities, aptitude and achievements. The colleges and cities visited will be based in specific regions of the US and all have a distinct variety of characteristics. They also represent a range of categories for students to choose: geographic location, institution type, student population, selection of majors, and school/local community. Students are not expected to choose one school but will have the opportunity to prioritize these characteristics and personal criteria upon the completion of their visit, which will play an important role in their college search process.
