Dubuque College Visit Week to Highlight Diverse Opportunities in Higher Education

By University Relations staff

DUBUQUE, Iowa - Dubuque has a rich history synonymous with education. In August, the city's five colleges will partner to highlight the diverse opportunities in higher education available for students during the first Dubuque College Visit Week from Monday, Aug. 2, 2021, through Friday, Aug. 6, 2021.

Clarke University, Emmaus Bible College, Loras College, Northeast Iowa Community College, and the University of Dubuque are excited to welcome high school students back to campus with in-person visits during Dubuque College Visit Week.

"As a group, we are aware that during the pandemic many students and families delayed or stopped planning for college and career. Dubuque College Visit Week is a great time to get back into the college search and the career exploration process. It will be a great way to kick off the new academic year with meaningful experiences and important information about college opportunities as students begin their next school year in the coming weeks. We believe that this will serve them well as they build a foundation of knowledge from which to choose their dream school and/or career path," said Robert Broshous, vice president of enrollment management and dean of admission at UD.

During Dubuque College Visit Week, prospective students will have the opportunity to tour campuses with student ambassadors, meet with professors about their academic area of interest, learn about student activities and programs, meet with admission counselors, and more.

Visit one college or all five to discover the educational experiences available to help prepare students for the future that awaits them. Please follow to schedule a visit during Dubuque College Visit Week.
