The Morning Call, Saturday, April 8, 2006
Article by Genevieve Marshall focuses on the popularity of college tours by high school guidance counselors from across the country. Some schools in other parts of the country offer lavish tours, complete with facials and trips to ski slopes. However, in the Lehigh Valley area, it is an opportunity for local campuses to show the best they have to offer. It is a way to meet the students and learn about the school. Also, says Marshall, it is a way to boost applications. DeSales, with its highly regarded physician assistant major, is among the schools mentioned. According to the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges, the Lehigh Valley is home to more than 27,000 undergraduates. Also, the consortium of schools in the area has a combined enrollment of 13,000 undergraduates. The tour also included, Moravian, Muhlenberg, Cedar Crest and Lehigh University.
