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 Midwest region to visit some of the top schools in the area, including:

•      THE Ohio State University

•      Ohio University

•      Indiana University – Bloomington

•      Purdue University

•      Northwestern University

•      University of Notre Dame

•      Michigan State University

•      University of Michigan

•      Kent State University


The Midwest region not only has excellent universities but also incredible experiential opportunities. When students are not in the classroom, they have the opportunity to be a part of a community that is rich in tradition and kindness. So kind, in fact, that researchers from the University of Cambridge published a study that stated participants from the Midwest exhibited friendly traits more commonly than people from any other region in the country. Not only will students who attend one of these schools receive an amazing education, but they will make friends 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 the best Chicago Deep Dish Pizza restaurant

•      An evening at Skyzone

•      Visit and dinner at the Pro Football Hall of Fame


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.


The college admissions process is a tricky one to navigate. Give yourself the best opportunity to succeed by joining us on our Midwest Colleges Tour!
