Freshman students had the chance to step outside the classroom and get a feel for what an average college students life feels like.

On Tuesday, April 9th, 2019, freshmen visited one of five colleges: Albright, Alvenia, Kutztown, Penn State Berks, or RACC. The purpose of the trip was to allow new high school students to start their “college visiting” career as they begin looking into education after high school.

Students were required afterwards to write a college reflection essay to be added to their Career Cruising portfolio. The essay reflected on food/meal plans, housing, academics, campus info, cost/financial aid, and activities offered.

Freshman Jeniffer Kehler said she learned a lot on her tour of Penn State-Berks.

“I did enjoy the visit,” she said. “I’d have to say seeing the places that you were going to be staying in, if you choose to, and seeing how clean and big the football field is was my favorite part.”

Megan Anders visited Kutztown University.

“It was very nice and welcoming, and my least favorite part was how tiny the dorms were,” she said.

Nicole Stoudt visited Penn State Berks.

“I really liked the tour because the campus was very pretty and I enjoyed walking around,” she said. “My favorite part of the college was how nice all the people were.”

Some students didn’t see the value in the trip. Haley Weinberger visited Penn State Berks and said she didn’t learn anything new on the tour.

“I thought the essay was pointless,” she said, “but I liked the fact that I was able to get out of classes for the day.”
