Hey Mom and Dad,
I’m sure all you’re hearing about from your high school kids is about stress and preparation for college. And it’s true, starting from as early as freshmen year it’s important to have consistent grades, extracurricular activities and leadership positions to help with the college application process. What makes it easier? Knowing exactly what is expected of prospective students at their dream schools.
Understanding the difference between a student’s target, reach, and safety school is important in figuring out what might give you an extra edge on an application and where might be an easy fit and most importantly the right fit.
That’s the beauty of having your kids join us on one of our college tours. If you haven’t learned it by now, whatever you say your teen is most likely going to do the opposite. By allowing your children to experience college campuses and the admissions sessions first hand, we see the lightbulbs go off and kids start to engage not only about the sports teams and clubs offered but the academics of it all. Sometimes it’s a unique freshmen intro class that piques their interest, sometimes it’s the hands on learning of an engineering class – whatever interests your child, they’re definitely going to listen up!
So here’s what you’ll get on with goCAMPUSing tour:
- Professional college counselors on every tour to answer your child’s every question
- A 1:10 adult chaperone to student ratio
- Hotel arrangements at 3 star hotels with private overnight security
- Hassle-free arrangements of college visits & information sessions
- A fun filled trip meeting new friends and exploring new areas
- And last but not least, some quiet time at home for you, and a happy child when they return!
Don’t worry, we’re not trying to take you out of the college selection process all together. In fact, by giving your kids an inch to start you can help them reach a mile. We’ve found that after our goCAMPUSing tours student bring their parents back into the process all on their own (who would’ve thought!). Once they realize the importance of their parent’s feedback, suggestions, and financial assistance students wind up depending on their parents for their help and wisdom.
Many of our goCAMPUSing students 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. Win-win, you don’t have to sit through hours of the same info sessions, and your child goes on to attending the school of their dreams.
