Grand View Will Host High School Students During Iowa Private College Week, August 5-9
Grand View will host prospective high school students during Iowa Private College Week, August 5-9.
For the entire week, twenty-six Iowa non-profit colleges and universities synchronize their campus tour schedules for the benefit of college-bound high school students and their families. During what’s called Iowa Private College Week students and their families can easily schedule tours at multiple campuses to learn about academic programs, student life and available student financial aid during twice-daily information sessions and tours starting at 9:00 am and 1:30 pm.
After each campus visit, students will receive a stamp on their IPCW “passport.” With three or more stamps, students who apply and are enrolled in a participating institution are eligible for one of two $500 bookstore vouchers offered by each participating college or university.
A partnership with Casey’s General Stores will offer families who present a valid IPCW passport a 5-cent per gallon discount on gasoline during the week, on purchases of up to 30 gallons per day.
Students may register here or at www.thinkindependently.com.
More than 48,000 students are enrolled at Iowa’s independent, nonprofit private colleges.
