2022 Colby, Bates, Bowdoin Tour
Welcome counselors! It is with great pleasure that Colby, Bates and Bowdoin invite you to visit our respective campuses and experience the beauty of Maine first-hand. The dates for the 2022 CBB Counselor Tour are Sunday, September 11 through Tuesday, September 13.
About the Tour
The CBB Counselor tour is a selective tour designed primarily for secondary school counselors and community-based organizations from across the country and provides an opportunity to visit three outstanding liberal arts colleges. The three-day program includes tours, panels and informational sessions focused on identifying the distinguishing characteristics of each respective school as well as an opportunity to explore Maine’s largest city, Portland. Following the experience, counselors leave better able to inform and advise their students about these three selective colleges.
Transportation and lodging will be paid for by the CBB consortium and travel arrangements will be made at the discretion of the colleges. Participants must be able to arrive in Portland on Sunday, September 11. Priority will be given to those counselors from distant regions or institutions that have not been represented on a recent tour. Since the tour is restricted in size, we have very limited room for counselors from New England and we cannot consider applications from independent counselors. Due to the limited space, we can only have one counselor per high school or program and no partners can be accommodated.
