Upward Bound College Tours

One of the benefits of being an Upward Bound student is having the opportunity to join us on college tours! The purpose of college tours is for students to be exposed to other universities both in-state and out-of-state. Transportation, hotel accommodations, and meals are provided at no cost to students!

During these tours, we will:college tour image 3

  • have a walking tour through campus
  • go over application requirements
  • discuss what majors are offered
  • discuss on-campus housing options
  • review tuition costs
  • explore what on campus life is like
  • meet with college advisors
  • tour TRIO office (if the college/university has a TRIO program)

Juniors and seniors will have priority on these college tours, but this is contingent on student participation. It is highly recommended for all students to be active in Upward Bound (going to Saturday sessions, after school tutoring, workshops, etc.) to be considered for a spot to go on a college tour. 

We try to schedule tours within Utah during the fall semester, and out of state tours in the spring semester. Destinations vary every year and are dependent on grant funding.
