Pennsylvania & West Virginia College Tour

Tuesday November 4- Friday November 7, 2025




Did you know that visiting a college is termed “demonstrated interest” by schools and is one of the admissions criteria used to determine an applicant’s acceptance? In fact, “demonstrated interest” is one piece of the admissions puzzle that can give a student up to a 40% chance of being admitted over other applicants.

The college admissions process is a tricky one to navigate. Give yourself the best opportunity to succeed by joining us on this fun-filled and educational two-day outing to Pennsylvania & West Virginia for visits to the campuses of the University of Pittsburg and West Virginia University.

In addition to this incredible experience, A-1 Tours offers an EXCLUSIVE partnership with University Seekers. University Seekers is a college preparatory service led by a local college admissions expert. With their guidance, they market your profile to your dream schools. They stay in touch with the admissions departments to ensure your application is highlighted, giving you a leg up on the competition.

Even if you’re not into playing sports, you will have just as much fun (possibly even more fun) spectating from the sidelines.

Pittsburgh is perfect if you are into professional sports as it’s the home of three major franchises The Pirates, Steelers & Penguins. As we arrive in the city, we start with lunch followed by an afternoon visit to The University of Pittsburgh - a top-ranked public institution. We will get a nice overview information session and campus walk.

From here we head for Duquesne Incline, one of Pittsburgh's most popular attractions offering a panoramic view of Downtown Pittsburgh and a great opportunity to take some good pictures! Pending time, we may also take a walk downtown to take in some of the city sights before dinner and check in at the hotel.
