Colby-Bates-Bowdoin (CBB) Counselor Tour

Colby-Bates-Bowdoin (CBB) Counselor Tour

September 11-13, 2016

The CBB Counselor Tour affords high school counselors and community-based organizations from across the country an opportunity to visit Maine’s leading liberal arts colleges. The three-day program includes campus tours, panels, and informational sessions focused on identifying the distinguishing characteristics of each school as well as an opportunity to explore Maine’s largest city, Portland. Following the experience, counselors leave better able to inform and advise their students about these selective colleges.

Transportation and lodging will be paid for by the CBB consortium. Travel arrangements for air, bus, or train transportation will be made at the discretion of the colleges. Participants must be able to arrive in Portland on September 11.

The CBB tour is selective and designed primarily for secondary school counselors and community-based organizations. Priority will be given to counselors from distant regions or schools that have not been represented on a recent tour.  As we can only accommodate 40 counselors, we have limited room for those from New England, and we do not consider applications from independent counselors. We are able to host only one counselor per high school or organization and no spouses can be accommodated. For more information, consult the CBB Tour FAQ.

The application for this year’s CBB tour is now closed.
