Start your School Search with the College Road Trip
If you are ready to start your college search, look no further than our College Road Trip!
WHO IS THIS FOR?
Jewish teens currently in 9th-11th grade. As JCC and Camp Chi program, we define “Jewish” broadly. As long as you and/or your family identify as Jewish in some way, this program is for you. We ask that everyone be open-minded and accepting of others’ beliefs and observances.
WHAT IS THE PLAN?
We’ll explore some of the best schools in the Big10 with coach busing providing transportation and hotel accommodations each night. At each stop we will meet with academic advisors, faculty from the study abroad office, experts in scholarship and financial aid, current students, all while exploring the university and learning about Jewish life on campus. Along the way we’ll take nightly outings with different field trips, escapades and more.
WHERE IS IT GOING?
We’ll be vising some of the most popular universities in the midwest including Penn State, Ohio Sate, Indiana University, and more!

WHY SHOULD I GO?
Why not? The College Road Trip is a great chance to visit a school that both may be on your list and ones that might not be on your radar. Seeing a variety of universities can help you better define what you’re looking for in your college experience. Plus, we have some great connections on these campuses and visiting with peers is very different than visiting with your family.
