Attention Students and Parents:

We are pleased to announce the Vacationland Tour, a joint travel partnership in Maine between Bowdoin College, Pomona College, Princeton University, Swarthmore College, and Wellesley College.

This year will include evening programs in Limestone, Bangor, and Portland on three consecutive nights; programming will include information on holistic admissions and financial aid, as well as the opportunity to learn about our specific institutions. We invite your students and their families to attend whichever program best fits their schedule.

We would be grateful if you could advertise these events in your school community; you will find the Tour poster attached. Your students may also receive information about the events from our institutions.

In addition to the student and family evening programs, we will also be hosting counselor events throughout Maine. These include a breakfast in Presque Isle and meet-and-greets in Bangor and Portland. The University of Chicago will be joining us at the Portland meet-and-greet! Please consider attending whichever event is most convenient for you. These gatherings allow us to meet and converse and will include the opportunity for you to hear recent updates from our institutions and ask questions.
