EHS Seniors Visit Rutgers University - New Brunswick
On Thursday, October 6th, Rutgers University hosted a group of 40 Ewing High seniors for an official group visit. After checking in at the Visitor Center on Busch Campus, the group enjoyed a two-hour walking tour of the College Avenue campus led by Scarlet Ambassador guides. Recent Ewing High graduates Madison Burnett and Hannah Washington met the group for lunch on The Yard to share some of their experiences and advice about making the transition from high school to college. After lunch, the group were led on a bus tour of the Livingston, Busch, and Cook/Douglas campuses by EHS teacher and Rutgers alum Alexander Minter, while EHS counselor Iné Collins also provided important information about the next steps of the college application process, including how to apply for financial aid. The seniors all raved about the experience, and almost all of them are now planning to apply to Rutgers-New Brunswick for admission in Fall 2023.
Dr. Antoni, Director of Counseling Services shared, “Ewing High School seniors toured the beautiful and illustrious campuses of Rutgers-New Brunswick. In addition to the tour, these seniors interacted with professionals specializing in college admissions and financial aid. It was a productive day!”
This trip marked the official return of the EHS College Tour program, which was created in 2015 with the goal of introducing our high school students to a diverse sampling of college environments with various demographics in location, size, and degree of competitiveness.
