If you still are not convinced, just listen to the experience that a past SSC student had when they attended the College Tours.
Chris Lebida was in his second to last semester at SSC when he attend the Fall 2016 College Tours to Rollins College and University of Central Florida. His desire to be a chemist led him to majoring in Chemistry and wanting to pick a university that not only had a good program, but that also would be a good fit for him. Christopher signed up for the College Tours to UCF and Rollins because he was having trouble deciding between which schools to attend. In an interview with Chris discussing his experience on the tour he said:
“The tour was exactly what I needed to experience. It was stress-free and gave a personal experience of what it would be like to be an actual student there. We all got to hear firsthand from a current student what it was like being either a “Knight” at UCF or a “Tar” at Rollins. “
When asked what the best part of the tour was he said:
“The best part for me by far, was when we actually got to see what a classroom experience was going to be like in both schools. We had the opportunity to actually enter a classroom and see what the real student experience would be like.”
Ultimately Chris would decide to go to Rollins to finish his bachelor’s degree in chemistry. The College Tours helped give him get a realistic student experience and allowed him to see both of his top contender schools and make a more informed and knowledgeable decision that would lead him to going from a Seminole State Raider, to now a Tar at Rollins College.
