The bus ride experience of the boston college students

We look forward to welcoming you this summer.

East Coast College Tour

To receive special early enrollment discounts, please submit your email address on the top right. Students arrive in Boston by Saturday evening, and make their way from Boston south to Washington DC visiting top universities and sampling the local culture along the way! Our tour is unique in the quality of our housing, food and travel arrangements.

Meals and our tour bus are also always of high quality, and students have often reported that our trip is far better in the quality of the travel arrangements than any other student tour they have ever taken. For many students, the process of figuring out which school best fits their needs is an overwhelming and confusing task.

The East Coast College Tour transforms this experience into an enriching and fun summer adventure, in which students take campus tours, have meetings with admissions representatives and receive materials to help evaluate each school. Tour participants are shown how to get the most out of their future college visits.

For example, students learn what questions they should be asking of campus officials, how to compare schools to one another, and what factors are most important for their personal college selection process. Many tours are led by the admissions office staff, others by personnel provided by Education Unlimited, depending on the campus and tour dates.

Historically, most of the actual campus tours have been provided by admissions office staff. The East Coast College Tour is a wonderful opportunity for students to tour numerous college campuses and evaluate their college options.

Students visit a wide variety of campuses, including private and public schools in both urban and rural areas. In less than one week, students have the opportunity to experience great American cities.

In the past, participants have hiked the liberty trail, dined in Harvard Square, explored Greenwich Village and the South Street Seaport, and witnessed the impressive monuments of DC while shopping in Georgetown. Housing is provided with students each having their own bed, usually in doubles or triples. Most overnight stays are at business class hotels, and are always at least rated as 3 star properties, but most years are 3.

2019 Registration Opens October 15!

We stay in the main areas where attractions are when feasible. Meals are provided, though some students bring some spending money for snacks or optional food items or souveniers! All essential items of room, board and transportation are provided during the trip, so it is possible to do the East Coast College Tour without any added cost or expense.

Students have the option to do the tour without the group flight, in which case they should plan to arrive in Boston and meet the tour on the evening of Day 1. For students doing the group flight, it will leave one of the three main Bay Area airports first thing in the morning on the day of departure Oakland, San Francisco, or San Joseoften as early as 6 am.

The group flight will be finalized in the last few weeks leading up to the tour, typically two to four weeks before departure. If you are coming into the Bay Area from another area, you should fly in the evening before departure on the group flight into Oakland airport and stay at a hotel near Oakland airport you can email us for recommendations.

Education Unlimited will pick up any students who need transit to the final airport of departure early in the morning of actual departure.

By paying the additional fee for the group flight you guarantee that fee is all that you need to pay regardless of what the final amount of the ticket costs, as Education Unlimited accepts responsibility for finding a flight within the flight budget or making up the difference and the flight costs have varied substantially from year to year! If you choose the group flight option less than 30 days before the start of the trip, however, there may be additional costs for ticketing and any additional costs above the basic fee will be added to the total program fee.

If there are additional costs related to signing up less than 30 days in advance of the trip, you will be alerted to any additional fees and be given the option to downgrade to the tour without group flight, in which case you can still go on the trip, but will simply meet up with the group at the Boston airport.
