At City Honors
City Honors hosts representatives from a wide range of colleges and universities who visit our guidance center to present information on their schools and answer questions. Students are encouraged to attend several of these visits to explore their collegiate opportunities. A daily calendar of the schools visiting as well as informational posters about upcoming visits are displayed in the corridor outside the counseling and guidance suite. As representatives often adjust their schedules on short notice, students are encouraged to consult this calendar frequently to check for changes.
Campus Tours is an excellent site to view before campus visits.
