Did you know that visiting a college is termed “demonstrated interest” by schools and is one of the admissions criteria used to determine an applicant’s acceptance? In fact, “demonstrated interest” is one piece of the admissions puzzle that can give a student up to a 40% chance of being admitted over other applicants.

 

Join us as we head tour the New England region to visit some of the top schools in the area, including:

•      Quinnipiac University

•      Williams College

•      Norwich University

•      University of Vermont

•      University of Massachusetts – Amherst

•      University of New Hampshire

•      University of Maine

•      Bowdoin College

•      University of Rhode Island

•      University of Connecticut

 

New England is home to some of the top universities in the world. Academic success is achieved through the partnership between students and professors. With many of the schools boasting stats such as full-time educators, above average post-graduation earning power and diverse student bodies; it isn’t any wonder that these are highly sought-after universities. To round out the experience, students have all of New England to discover on the weekends! Expect to explore the beautiful beaches of Massachusetts, visit gilded mansions in Rhode Island, hike your way through Vermont, tour historic seaports of Connecticut, continue your mountaintop exploration in New Hampshire and feast on lobster in Maine. Students will have it all with both educational and experiential memories to last a lifetime.

 

Get ready for some exciting sightseeing opportunities! As we tour through the schools, there will be plenty of chances to experience what this city has to offer, including*:

•      Dinner at a local Lobster House (you can’t visit New England without having lobster!)

•      Free time in Portland, ME

•      Dinner at Becky’s Diner, featured of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives

 

In addition to all of these incredible experiences, Triangle Tours offers an EXCLUSIVE partnership with University Seekers. University Seekers is a college preparatory service led by a local college admissions expert. With their guidance they market your personal profile to your dream schools. They stay in touch with the admissions departments to ensure your application is highlighted, giving you a leg up on the competition.
