HRA’s Junior Class hit the road to explore colleges
HRA’s junior class recently returned from their overnight tour of colleges. This year, they visited George Washington University, American University, George Mason University, the University of Mary Washington, and Randolph Macon College. At each stop, students have a private information session and tour as well as a meal in the dining facilities. They also spend time with HRA alumni at each of the colleges and universities.
The tour is designed to introduce students to the differences among colleges in terms of size and location, help students learn how to engage a college visit most effectively, and have fun doing it!
The College Counseling Office at HRA has been doing this tour for the last 15 years and visited such colleges at the University of Richmond, The University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Roanoke College, Hollins University, James Madison University, and Radford University.
