Since 1998, College That Change Lives (CTCL) schools have been traveling together to meet families interested in learning more about this distinctive group of colleges and universities. The program begins with the presentation “How To Choose a College That’s Right For You” to encourage students to make the college search process a well-informed journey that leads to the best possible outcome: finding the right college for them. A college fair follows.
CTCL events are free of charge, and pre-registration is not required. We invite students, parents, and college counselors to join us for this enoightening discussion and the opporutnity to meet with representatives from each of the participating colleges.
