Really busy this year (loads of kids!Buses were a mess! Most AVID students don't have positive college conversations at home and this is their first experience with College Reps - friendly, informative, reassuring, so appreciate this field trip!
It is so good that it get so bad. that is, it gets too crowded that it's hard to move around both in and outside. But on the positive note, it's good to see many young people having the opportunity to speak with all the different college reps.
We were on the bus (I am disabled and have no car) and because it was a Sunday, we were about an hour late getting there. We had very limited amount of time to check out the schools. We did get some info though. A weekday or Saturday would be better.
Had a very nice set up and the colleges were very nice but some of the alumni that were representing their schools were not interested in talking and they didn't seem to want anything to do with us when we walked up to their booth. Real shame.
