“Thank you for an extraordinary week. The energy, expertise, selection of schools, and organization of the PNACAC tour was fabulous! I look forward to another great tour next year! Again, thank you!!!”
“The tour was top-notch. I would not have believed that we could cover TEN COLLEGES in five days, absorb all the information, and have a fun time as well.”
“I liked the evaluations of college applications - that was really, really useful.”
“The scholarship for counselors is wonderful. I hope this continues. I learned so much about the schools we visited. I am using the photos and school info for a slide show that is on a loop. It is shown in the common area for the students to see. It features a school bi-weekly with the college information, enrollment, degrees, application deadlines, etc. Then students are given a question to answer about the school to put in a drop box for a chance to win a prize from the school that I picked up.”
“I was so impressed with the caliber of PNACAC tour -- the transportation, housing and the receptions by the colleges, not to mention the entertaining discussions on the bus! I think that most of the schools did a terrific job with their tours, and professor/student panels.”
“As always, a huge benefit of PNACAC tours is the interaction with other counselors. We had a dynamic, lively group, and I have turned to several of the counselors I met on tour for advice and support when working with a challenging student. I truly love the way school counselors and independent counselors can work as a team with the student's best interest as the guiding focus. PNACAC fosters this collaboration in ways that aren't always as obvious in other parts of the country, and that is one reason I love the organization.”
