College Tours

Offered this Fall and Spring

A college tour is perhaps the single most influential motivating factor in connecting a high school student with the realities of college life. Brochures, videos, college fairs, and one-on-one advising take a back seat to the experience of stepping onto campus for the first time. Once on campus, CollegeBound students interact with students from similar socio-economic backgrounds and realize that they can participate in the college experience. Since 2001, college tours have increased fourfold and newly created overnight tours now expose Baltimore’s youth to higher education options and opportunities at colleges and universities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

For most of our first generation college going students, it is their first out-of-state travel experience. The college tour helps them expand their horizons and place their dream of college within reach.
