College Tours For International Students

Travel ~ Learn ~ Observe ~ Experience ~ Enjoy


“College Tours: SPiE organized college tours are planned to help prospective students learn about the colleges, the cultures and the admissions process.”


International students who plan to study in the USA have easy access to multiple sources of college information through seminars, brochures, video clips, the internet and friends. But that is like reading and learning about the Taj Mahal without having actually walked into the cool shade of the marble arches that echo with achievement, culture and beauty.


A college visit is similar to walking on the lawns of the Taj Mahal; it is an opportunity for every student to get an upfront and personal insight into colleges where they may be spending over 100,000 USD during the next four years of their lives in the pursuit of their goals.


During a college tour, students get an opportunity to meet with professors; to sit in on student advisor seminars; to ask questions and get direct answers about the admission process, scholarships and future careers; to visit libraries and stadiums; to see student living facilities and share experiences with students from other cultures; to touch, see and feel the atmosphere of each college and make sure it offers the right opportunities.
