Posted August 1st, 2017

The College Guidance Department supervised two college tours which allowed our Christian Gentlemen to view the campuses of over 14 prestigious universities. The tours were split into two separate circuits; with the the first taking place in Maryland & Washington, D.C. and the final across New Jersey & Pennsylvania.

The students were engaged throughout and received a wealth of information from the schools that were featured on the tours.  In addition to taking in the various campuses, during evenings the members of the circuit explored the local scenery.  Students had the opportunity to walk through as well as dine in the Baltimore Inner Harbor.  The following night students visited the White House and the Washington Monument. During the evening in Lambertville, New Jersey the group walked the historic bridge into New Hope, Pa.

The first tour made stops at Towson University , Loyola (MD) University , Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, The Catholic University & Maryland University while featuring 27 students and 4 counselors.

The second and final tour visited Rider University, Princeton University, The College of New Jersey, St. Joseph’s University, University of Pennsylvania (Wharton School of Business), Villanova University, & Drexel University while featuring 33 students and 5 counselors.
