Spring Break College Tour
Students visited five schools in a three day period starting at the University of Kentucky, Fisk University, Tennessee State University, Vanderbilt University, and concluding at Alabama A&M University.
Leo serves a large population of students who will be the first in their families to go to college.
This experience allowed a personal encounter with the culture and climate of a post-secondary institution. Through this experience students visited both small and large universities, as well as Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The exposure will allowed students to determine the best fit for their own college experience. For many of the eight students who plan to attend college in the 2019 and 2020 school years, this was not only their first visit to a college or university but also their first time outside of the City of Chicago.
