Independent Colleges Indiana


Record Number of Counselors On Board

"I learned a great deal and will be referring kids to some of these fantastic colleges!"  ~College Advising Counselor, New York

"It was great to see all those colleges I've always only read about and to find gems."  ~College Advising Counselor, Virginia

"Thank you so much for the amazing, informative, and very organized Indiana college tour. I was so pleased to visit so many private colleges and to meet so many enthusiastic, professional people."  ~College Advising Counselor, Arizona

Those were just a few of the positive comments that ICI received after this year's Campus Tours for high school counselors, attracting the largest number of participants in the program's history. From June 13 to 15, 76 counselors from 24 states, accompanied by ICI staff, visited seven of Indiana's 31 private colleges.

Blazing heat and pouring rains were no match for the hospitality and informative sessions and tours offered by the campuses on the 2016 schedule:  Indiana Wesleyan University, Wabash College, DePauw University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Franklin College, Hanover College, and Butler University. 

Each June, the tour features seven or eight ICI member institutions on a rotating basis, giving counselors an up-close and personal look at the diversity of excellence and choice available at Indiana's private college and universities.  A recurring comment from counselors is that the experience allows them to picture individual students on specific campuses, enhancing their own efforts to help students find the best college fit.

The 2017 tour schedule will be announced this fall and registration will open in January.  For more information:
