The College Days program provides North Country and Capital District high schools a chance to jump start their students' college selection process by exposing them to college life. 

Students will receive advice from admissions professionals, hear from currently enrolled students, talk with faculty about degree and career pathways, take a campus tour, and eat in the dining facilities!

During the program, your students will:

  • Participate in an interactive presentation focused on navigating the college search and application process, as well as insight into scholarships and financial aid tools.
  • Use live polling to interact with a currently enrolled student panel who will address their concerns about college and give advice for choosing the right school.
  • Take a work interest assessment in advance of the program to learn how their strengths translate into majors.
  • Participate in faculty breakout sessions for in-depth discussions about career options and degree pathways.
  • Take a campus tour featuring academic buildings, a residence hall, the library, and more!
  • Enjoy a complimentary on-campus lunch in one of our dining facilities.
