Hey, Parents!

Hey, Mom ‘n Dad! Do you have a child/children in high school? Are they high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors? Are they college bound? Are they thinking about picking colleges to apply to? Are you thinking about it? Do they know how to select what colleges out there are best for them? Do you know what colleges are best for them? Do you have the answers to all of their questions about the thousands of colleges in the United States? Do you know what they have to do in picking what college’s they should apply to? Do you know about Reach, Target, and Safety college choices? Are you up-to-date with the college application process? Are you familiar with the latest in college costs and the financial aid college offers? Do you even know all of the colleges out there that would be best for your child/children to apply to? Not just the Ivy League colleges and brand name schools...but the hidden gems that your child/children will absolutely fall in love with.

At goCAMPUSing, we understand that many parents look at college visits as a bonding experience with their children. It’s almost a cultural thing with parents. Let’s ruin a summer vacation or a bunch of weekends visiting a couple of area colleges. Your child/children are embarrassed at the questions you ask, (if you even arranged a session with the admission people), or they just hang back engrossed with their cell phones. You love the colleges and they hate them. You are thinking one way and you haven’t a real clue what your child/children are thinking.

That’s normal. We’ve witnessed this dynamic between parents and their kids a hundred times during our goCAMPUSing College Tours. The children with their parents are unengaged and play a second fiddle to their parents who are asking questions about fire extinguishers and meal plans.

By the second college campus, kids on a goCAMPUSing College Tour are asking the questions all by themselves. They are right up front, during the admissions info sessions and on the tour. They’re asking about course majors, the college’s grading system, acceptance rates, special scholarships, Greek life, and about what there is to do outside in the college’s surrounding community, and a whole lot more.

Why? Because the responsibility to find out about colleges and what they have to know and do about selecting and applying to college has been thrust upon them. And they love it! They’re in high school and in just a year or two...they will be in college where they will be in a similar situation where the responsibility to make choices are up to them. On a goCAMPUSing College Tour students assume a very important role...that of determining their own futures.

  • Professional college counselors on every tour are there to answer your child’s most obscure questions
  • Safe surroundings with a 1/10 adult chaperone/student ratio
  • Overnight lodging at 3 to 4 star hotels with overnight security
  • You save the hassle of making arrangements of
    college visits & info sessions
  • You save the gas, wear ‘n tear on your car, and avoid hundreds of miles of driving
  • Best of all, you save family vacation time for actual vacations

Now please do not get us wrong, in no way are we attempting or even suggesting to remove parents from their child/children’s college selection process...on the contrary, it has been our experience that a goCAMPUSing College Tour actually enforces the role of parents in that process. Students on a goCAMPUSing College Tour realize the importance of their parent’s feedback, suggestions, and financial assistance. goCAMPUSing opens a student’s eyes to all of the machinations of the college selection, application, and acceptance process and how much they will have to depend on their parents for their help. Many students who go on goCAMPUSing College Tours discover their own formula in selecting a college and then they ask their parents to take them to a handful of specific colleges that they are interested in attending. So instead of visiting a bunch of colleges, playing hit or miss, a college visit with Mom & Dad does become a bonding moment with their child/children, because the student is excited and motivated about the college visit. And isn’t that the kind of Parent Son/Daughter college experience you’re looking for?

We ask that you take the time read some of the things students, parents, and school counselors have written about our goCAMPUSing College Tours on our TESTIMONIALS Page and to review our upcoming Pre-Planned goCAMPUSing College Tours. A goCAMPUSing College Tour just might be the second most important investment in your child’s college education.

Questions? Please feel free to send us an email or call. We’d love to hear from you and answer all your questions.
