Grand Edventures launches Grand College Tours
When it comes to selecting a college that is just right for your child, a campus tour is a must.
Each year, Grand College Tours will be offering high school students entering 10th, 11th or 12th grades the opportunity to tour Florida college campuses.
Students will visit the University of Florida, University of Central Florida, Florida State University, University of North Florida, University of South Florida, University of South Florida St. Petersburg, University of Tampa, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Flagler University.
High School Guidance Counselors and College Admissions Directors note that a college visit is an absolute necessity for high school students interested in attending college. Grand College Tours will provide guided campus tours and information sessions that include meeting with the admissions department, visiting the campus housing and dining rooms, and seeing the athletic and activities buildings of Florida’s top colleges.
“ For college bound students and their parents, taking college tours in high school can be stressful, with pressure to soak in everything you’ll need to make a critical, life-changing decision”, states Robin Ellman, a client of Grand College Tours. “This trip will give my son the opportunity to experience the various colleges’ cultures with his peers. It ‘s a great time and money saver for us and it will allow him to narrow down his choices and then we can revisit his final choices as a family.”
Andrea Grundt, a long time PTA member and former PTA President, is a mother of four with two in college and two more to go, states, “I wish this was available when my first two were looking at schools. It was very overwhelming and expense to visit all the colleges in the State. Having a company like Grand Edventures plan the visits would have been ideal!”
According to top college planners, parents who start the process early can reduce stress and their teens begin to have a sense of what different colleges and universities have to offer academically, socially and culturally. Grand College Tours will be valuable resource towards this goal.
