It may be football season, but it’s also undergraduate application season for Southeastern Conference universities.

To assist and answer questions high school counselors have, admissions representatives from the 14 member universities took part in the SEC College Tour. This fall, the SEC group traveled to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as well as East Brunswick and Morristown, New Jersey, before hosting a virtual option for counselors nationwide.

The SEC College Tour allows counselors to ask direct questions to the representatives, and is an opportunity to showcase the unique educational and student life experiences on each campus.

Auburn University hosted the three Northeast events. Attendees met with the SEC representatives before a short presentation from each university. Topics covered admissions and scholarship details, degree offerings, student life and more.

The University of Arkansas then hosted the Virtual SEC College Tour. In a similar format to the in-person events, the SEC universities presented information before answering questions live in the webinar. Counselors from both events were given printed or digital resources to use as guides.

The goal of the SEC College Tour, which includes a spring in-person event, is to broadly advance the merit and academic reputation of SEC universities through outreach events beyond the Conference’s geographic footprint. It is one of several programs designed by the Conference to highlight the range of accomplishments by SEC students, faculty and administrators.
