Every year, Five Colleges brings together 55 high school counselors from around the country to experience our campuses firsthand through student-led tours and presentations by the admissions directors. This year, we invite you to learn how our students can choose from thousands of courses on five campuses, have access to 9 million library volumes through the Joint Online Library Catalog and participate in Five College academic programs that pool the strengths of each institution.
Pre-Registration/Registration: Invitation postcards are mailed out to interested counselors each spring, typically mid-April. If you would like to receive a postcard containing pre-registration information for our fall 2014 tour, please email your mailing address to email@example.com. We register 55 counselors after a pre-registration cut-off date; due to the limited capacity available during this tour, we are only able to register a small percentage of independent counselors. Should you become registered to attend the tour, further details on how to proceed will be emailed to you.
Lodging: Your lodging will be on us at the historic Hotel Northampton, here in beautiful western Massachusetts at the peak of foliage season. Each counselor will share a double occupancy room with another counselor for two nights on Sunday and Monday.
Transportation: If you give us at least 24-hours notice, Five Colleges will, at no charge, arrange to have you picked up at an area train or bus station, or at Bradley International Airport (BDL) in Hartford, CT. We can also return you after 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon.
Schedule: The tour will begin with an early evening event on Sunday, and the last campus tour will end around 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
