About the Trip
Through this hands-on Destination, you will get a detailed look into college admissions, prepare for the college-application process, and learn how to choose the right candidate schools for you. We will visit a variety of college and university campuses, speak to admissions officers and recruitment specialists to prepare for the application process, earn badges, and much more. The trip will also include a look at next steps after college acceptance, including financial aid and paying for college, choosing a major, and experiencing college life!
