Counselors Visit Grand View on The R.I.D.E.


The R.I.D.E (Rediscovering Iowa’s Diverse Education) came to Grand View this year.  This three-day bus tour takes secondary counselors from door-to-door to Iowa's college campuses, providing a first-hand look at all the schools can offer their students.

Every year the RIDE's region of travel changes, taking counselors to a variety of colleges in a specific region for tours, hands-on learning, meals and even overnights in residence halls.

The Iowa Association for College Admission Counseling (Iowa ACAC) held this year’s R.I.D.E., from June 9-12, 2013. The R.I.D.E. is designed to allow high school counselors three days of fun and learning at several colleges and universities in Iowa.

This year’s R.I.D.E. focused on colleges and universities in central Iowa.  In addition to Grand View, stops included:

Ellsworth Community College
Marshalltown Community College
Grinnell College
Iowa State University
PCI Academy
Des Moines Area Community College – Ankeny Campus
Drake University
Mercy College of Health Sciences
