CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Representatives from West Virginia’s colleges and universities will hit the road today as part of West Virginia’s annual “College Day Tour.” During the tour, college admissions and planning counselors, along with military service representatives, will set up displays and host informational workshops in every region of the state.
The West Virginia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (WVACRAO) organizes the event and works to ensure that West Virginia’s high school students have an opportunity to get college planning information close to home.
Additionally, representatives from the College Foundation of West Virginia (CFWV) attend every event to provide information on state-level financial aid. CFWV is a statewide outreach effort coordinated by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission (Commission) in partnership with the West Virginia Community and Technical College System, the West Virginia Department of Education and the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts.
The College Day Tour kicks off in Wood and Jackson counties and continues through October 30. Many events are hosted by area high schools as part of the regular school day. Additionally, some workshops are held in community centers or during the evenings so that parents, family members and adults who are interested in going to college can attend.
A complete schedule is available online at West Virginia’s college and career-planning website, www.cfwv.com.
