College Rep Visits at IA

Did you know that we have college representatives that visit our campus during the school day? In August we had visits from The University of Vermont, Princeton and Georgia Tech! These visits are open to students only and are a great way for students to get the scoop on campus life, how to get in, and anything else they would like to know.

​It’s easy for students to find a schedule of schools and to register to attend. Students simply log into Naviance through Classlink. They will then see the list of colleges coming to IA and can register. Teacher permission to attend visits is required. This is an ongoing opportunity and colleges and universities are frequently updated.
