BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (September 13, 2021) – Admissions and enrollment administrators from the Southeastern Conference’s 14 member universities will virtually conduct the league’s first ever national SEC College Tour, the Conference announced on Monday.
In an expansion of previous events that have been aimed at a specific area of the country, this year’s virtual SEC College Tour will welcome school counselors from all areas beyond the Conference’s traditional geographic footprint.
“The goal of the SEC College Tour since its inception in 2009 has been to present our universities to those outside of our region, and this will be the first time we do so on a national scale,” said SEC Associate Commissioner for Academic Relations Dr. Torie A. Johnson. “Although we have traditionally conducted college tour events in person, we are looking forward to building upon the success of last year’s virtual tours and to engaging with more counselors than ever before.”
The University of Georgia will again organize the fall SEC College Tour, after facilitating the SEC’s inaugural virtual event last year for counselors in the greater New York area. The tour is scheduled for October 12-14, and the program will offer attendees an opportunity to engage with SEC university representatives while learning about the missions, academic and extracurricular opportunities, and admissions requirements of all 14 SEC institutions. The event program will also continue to include Q&A sessions, informal discussions, and individual presentations from each member university.
The goal of the SEC College Tour is to broadly advance the merit and academic reputation of SEC universities through outreach events, and it is one of several programs designed by the Southeastern Conference to showcase the range of accomplishments of SEC students, faculty and administrators.
Registration for the virtual SEC College Tour will begin soon, and as space will be limited, counselors are asked to register early at www.SECCollegeTour.org.
