On Tuesday, April 14, SVC participated in the 36th annual Consortium of Vermont Colleges Counselor Bus Tour. Forty school counselors and independent educational consultants from across the country had the opportunity to spend two hours on the SVC campus. In addition to enjoying a beautiful spring day in Southern Vermont, our guests had the opportunity to meet President Evans, tour campus, speak with a variety of faculty, staff, and students, and, of course, make a Vermont snack bag for the road! This enabled our visitors to learn first-hand about SVC’s academic programs, student life offerings, and most importantly – how SVC works to offer our students an empowered and personalized education that prepares them for future careers and graduate school. Throughout the week, counselors will be visiting 18 colleges across Vermont, both private and public. While traveling the Green Mountains, they will have a front row seat to the landscape of VT higher education institutions – from small boutique/niche colleges to Vermont’s largest university. We all know that visiting a college campus is the best way to “get a feel” for a place and to see if it might be the right fit. Together, higher education professionals are helping students find the right fit. That is what this bus tour is all about – a partnership – designed to help counselors connect with campuses and truly get to know them. I look forward to welcoming counselors and their students to campus in the future, and if you or someone you know could benefit from learning about an SVC education, contact us or stop by the Wagner House!
Take good care,
