college tours

This program allows the entire sophomore class to participate in a college tour, information session and lunch in a dining hall. The visits are set up at six to eight different colleges and students are able to choose from those on the list. Students hear first-hand the expectations for admission to each college and also gain a valuable experience through touring the campus and eating in the dining hall with other college students.

I went on the sophomore to college field trip and visited Merrimack College. I really enjoyed visiting this college because it got me started early in figuring out what I do and do not want in the college that I end up choosing. I learned all about the admissions process, what it takes to get in and succeed there, and also what the costs are. Visiting Merrimack was a great experience. Thank you for allowing me and my classmates to have this great experience. - David Warde, sophomore
