Visiting a college campus can greatly impact middle and high school students’ interest in college, as well as their motivation to take action and get more information about college options available to them*. Through customized field trips that include hands-on experiences, building tours, classroom visits and/or information sessions with current IU students, staff and faculty, we support middle and high school students in developing a deeper understanding of college life and expectations, academic options in the School of Education, and various career options supported by a degree in Education.
