fall college tour announced
October 7, 2011
35 sophomores and juniors + 5 colleges + 3 chaperones + 2 days + 2 nights + 1 bus = 1 fantastic opportunity!
The 2011 Fayetteville Academy College Tour is heading south this year, taking interested sophomores and juniors to the Atlanta, GA and Greenville, SC areas. The tour schedule includes visits to Emory University, Georgia Tech, Oglethorpe University, Furman University, and Clemson University. Students will have the opportunity to hear from admission officers and take campus tours at each of these institutions. They will also have the chance to sample the cuisine offered at three university dining halls.
The bus will leave from The Academy on Wednesday, November 9 after school, and the group will tour colleges on Thursday, November 10 and Friday, November 11. The Academy will be closed on both days in observance of the Veterans’ Day holiday, so students will not have to miss any school. The total cost for the tour is $200, which covers hotel and transportation expenses as well as three on-campus meals. To reserve a place on this tour, please give a check made out to The Fayetteville Academy to Miss Snead in the college counseling office by Friday, October 14. Then, circle November 10 and 11 on your calendars, hum a few bars of “Georgia on my Mind,” and start looking forward to a great college tour!
