College Tours

Deciding where to go to college is a major life decision. A college tour is an opportunity to get first-hand experience of college life and connect with valuable resources that help get you into college and stay successful. Walking around campus, sitting in on a class and visiting a dorm will tell you more than any website or brochure.

Upcoming Tours & Events

The Urban League of Nebraska holds college tours throughout the year, including one large tour during spring break — the Cultural & Leadership College Tour. Participants visit both in-state and out-of-state institutions, including HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities).

What Happens On a College Tour?

During campus visits, youth meet college students (some of whom were past Urban League of Nebraska program participants), faculty, and admissions and financial aid officers. And because college isn’t just about hitting the books, youth also attend events like concerts and visit companies and cultural centers like museums and landmarks important to the rich history of African Americans.

How Much Does It Cost?

College tours are financially supported by a combination of sponsorship, fees paid by students and their families, and fundraisers hosted by students and staff.  Use this button to make a donation to help defray travel expenses for a student of our choosing.
