Since many of our students are college bound, planning for the future means researching and selecting a college or university that is a good fit for at least the next two to four years of their lives. For some students a campus visit will inform them instantly whether or not that particular campus is right for them. For other students, a campus visit to any college is beneficial to see firsthand what college life is like and to motivate them to start their college search.
Project SUCCESS organizes and hosts state and national college tours to an average of 40 college/university campuses annually. These are critical opportunities that both inspire and educate young people about their possibilities and opportunities.
Project SUCCESS staff conduct workshops on tour days to help student make the most of their campus visit, including preparing thoughtful questions for admissions staff. Following campus visits, students' facilitators are available to help them take the next steps in the application process through after-school one-on-one workshops.
We encourage students to visit college campuses with their families or to join us for any of the college tours we offer at Project SUCCESS.
