The California Campus experience Tour is a wonderful opportunity for students to visit numerous college campuses and evaluate their college options. Students tour a wide variety of campuses, including private and public schools in both urban and rural areas. Participants will be able to determine if a large or small school is appropriate for them, and, with the comparison materials provided, students are able to review their options once they have returned home. In less than one week, students have the opportunity to experience many great American cities.
We encourage students to enroll with friends, but even those who don’t arrive knowing someone will end up with a group of newly-found peers from across the US and often around the world. Housing is provided, and students are usually housed in double or triple rooms. Most overnight stays are at business class hotels such as Sheraton, Westin, Marriott, or Embassy Suites. When feasible, students stay in the central areas near attractions. We may also occasionally stay in a campus dorm/residence hall to get a feel of campus living.
Meals are provided, though many students choose to bring spending money for snacks or optional food items, and souvenirs. All the essential items of room, board, and transportation are provided during the trip, so it is possible to comfortably participate in the California Tour without any added cost or expense.
