** Note: Where the schedule presents multiple schools in the same time slot, students will be able to choose which school they want to visit.  In the morning the bus will visit each of the universities listed in that time slot.  Students/chaperones will be dropped off to do their respective tours and then the bus will circle back to pick everyone up.  The group will enjoy lunch together and then divide up again for afternoon tours.
