    Junior Parent Meeting Power Point 2020 


    Many students had plans to visit college campuses over spring break and during the summer. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, campuses are closed for tours. To help facilitate your research of colleges, we have compiled a list of colleges and universities who provide virtual tours of their campuses. Check out the smore we have created and click on each button to go to that universities virtual tour:
    There are many more virtual tours than listed here. If you do not see a college you are interested in on this list, go to their website to find their virtual tour information. You can also check out additional colleges through CHOICES 360.
    Virtual HBCU College Tour
    Since many college tours were cancelled, the Chicago alumni chapters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities teamed up to bring you this event presented by the Chicago HBCU Alumni Alliance.
