Juniors Embark on Virtual College Trip
Reina Guerrero, College Counselor

"Juniors, hop on board for the first-ever virtual College Tour!" That was the theme last Wednesday when the college office held the first of three virtual college visits for the Class of 2022. The juniors boarded one of three virtual buses - "Goin' with Cohen," "The G Machine" and "Kraus Haus." From trivia games to opening music and jokes, Ms. Cohen, Ms. Guerrero and Ms. Kraus gave entertaining introductions before arriving at the first stop of the virtual tour - Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.  

The juniors attended a virtual information session by Shawn Felton, Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Cornell. After the information session, the students went on a virtual tour of campus, viewing different campus academic and recreational facilities, including picturesque scenes of Ithaca, NY. The last event of the day was a panel of CGPS alums now studying at Cornell. Our current juniors had the opportunity to ask the alumni a wide variety of questions about their college experiences, Cornell-specific questions and the college process.  

The next stop on the virtual college bus tour is Syracuse University!
