Guided tours of each campus are led by current students who share their own experiences, provide details about programs and services, and share insider information about meals, dorms, extracurriculars, social life, campus traditions, services, and even getting in!
Information sessions are hosted by admissions officers who provide a broad overview of the college, its academic and extracurricular opportunities, and essential information for potential applicants such as what an admissions committee look for when reviewing applications.
Participants will engage with our highly experienced counselors/tour leaders in discussions about various aspects of the college admissions process. We will focus on both the college search and application process. Topics include finding the best fit, essay writing, essentials of a great application, and ways to maximize chances of admission.
Each day, tour leaders will assist students to review and process their experiences and to prepare for the next day. Sharing and discussing experiences and perspectives with others is powerful, as it helps to fill in any gaps as well as to gain a comprehensive understanding of what each college has to offer.
On most of our tours, we spend one or two nights in a residence hall (dorm) on one of the campuses. We hold sessions there, eat in their dining halls, and explore the campus during free time. This provides students a glimpse of what it is like to live on a college campus. Students always comment on the value of this experience.
In addition to the actual college visits, participants always comment about how much they enjoyed interacting with other international students from around the world, developing new friendships, and discussing each other’s unique perspective on each college visit.
