Counselor Visit Opportunities

IECA Annual Conference

For those independent educational consultants visiting New England for IECA’s Annual Conference, you are invited to come see for yourself the rich academic environment, the physical transformation of campus, and the Friar community. As part of the program, you will hear from Office of Admission representatives about the admission process at PC through an information session geared specifically for counselors. Following the session, you will experience a student-led tour of campus. Further details will be available in Spring 2020.

Rhode Island Association of Admission Officers (RIAAO) Counselor Tour

Each spring, Providence College participates in the Rhode Island Association of Admission Officers (RIAAO) Counselor Tour. RIAAO hosts the annual Counselor College Tour, which allows counselors to visit the 10 four-year institutions in Rhode Island. This program is open to domestic and international school counselors from public, private, and parochial secondary schools, as well as independent counselors and community college advisors. Each year, one counselor from a Rhode Island secondary school is also selected to participate. Every stop includes a campus tour, meeting with admission representatives, breakfast/lunch/dinner, and other programming the institution has designed. Counselors can expect to spend up to 3 hours at each institution.

Local Counselor Day

Offered every other year, Local Counselor Day welcomes school and college counselors from Rhode Island to join us for the opportunity to learn about the type of student who is a great fit for PC, as well as witness the great transformation our campus has undergone in the past decade.

New England Sampler College Tour

Each fall, Providence College participates in the New England Sampler College Tour.  The New England Sampler College Tour is hosted by Providence College, Emerson College and Wheaton College. Their aim is to provide school counselors and independent counselors with the opportunity to “one stop shop” where you can learn about three universities, each with their own niche, located in the heart of New England. The New England Sampler College Tour is currently on hold and no future dates are planned.

Visiting Rhode Island?

Whether you are taking a family vacation to Cape Cod or exploring beautiful Rhode Island, we would love for you to visit our amazing campus. Come see for yourself the recent additions to campus, such as the Ryan Center for Business Studies, Science Complex, Anderson Stadium and much more! We encourage all counselors planning a visit to campus to notify us so we can arrange a comprehensive experience that fits your needs. Please contact the counselor for your region to let us know when you will be on campus.
