Hi, Friends and Happy Friday!

For those of you with children/family friends in high school, this spring break is a perfect opportunity to visit a college campus!

As high school students enter their spring semester, they may want to consider visiting university or college campuses to narrow down schools they will be applying to senior year.

The spring semester, and spring break, in particular, is the perfect time to visit colleges. By now, students have gotten into the groove of their classes and are probably starting to think about next year and their college future. The best part of the spring semester is that there is a long week in the middle that doesn’t require school obligations!

Is Corpus Christi your spring break destination this year? Lucky for you, Corpus Christi is home to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi! The Island University, the only university in the nation located on its own island, at the heart of the Texas Gulf Coast has palm tree lined pathways throughout campus, has nearby natural wetlands, a scenic hike-and-bike trail and a pristine view of the beach and bays. Offering more than 60 of the most popular degrees in the state, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi is a first-choice university for many students.

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is home to more than 12,000 students and is the only university in the nation located on it’s own island.

Whether you are making your first visit to campus, want to take a tour, or are curious about the admissions process, the Islander Welcome Center is the first stop for prospective students to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.

Taking a guided tour of campus is a great way to learn about the Island University and the many opportunities available to you. The walking tours of central campus will provide you and your family with an overview of TAMU-CC’s academic programs, campus history, student life, and traditions.

Of course, your students are extremely busy right now preparing for the SAT or ACT, maximizing their GPAs, participating in extracurricular activities, learning to drive, and having a social life. All valuable pursuits that can place campus tours at the bottom of your to-do list. However, I recommend visiting campuses during the academic year because your teen can get realistic firsthand exposure to campus atmosphere which includes Greek life, athletic events, academic climates, classroom experiences, performing arts activities, and more!

For more information regarding tours this Spring Break, please visit tour.tamucc.edu or call 361.825.8687(TOUR) to learn more about A&M-Corpus Christi’s campus visit programs!

Talk to you soon, Friends!
