The Jesuit Excellence Tour Returns to Baltimore and DC

Midway through a grueling year-round schedule of visits to different regions of the country, representatives from the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU) will once again be hosting Jesuit Excellence Tour (JET) College Nights in Baltimore and DC next week.

Popular undergraduate destinations, the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities form the institutional membership of the AJCU. Although each college is separately chartered and entirely autonomous, the schools are bound by a common heritage, vision, and purpose.

Beginning in September, Jesuit Excellence Tours featuring any combination of the 28 schools are scheduled from California to DC. Although daytime activities mainly target parochial high schools, JET College Nights are open to the public.

The College Nights are a great way for high school students and their parents to learn more about many of the wonderful options for Jesuit education,” said Anna Follensbee, senior assistant director of undergraduate admission for Loyola University Maryland. “While we all share the same core Jesuit values and philosophy, this year’s group of participating colleges and universities is representative of the kind of diversity found among the schools in terms of size, programs, location and setting."

The Baltimore JET College Night will feature 21 Jesuit colleges at
Loyola Blakefield on Monday March 5 (6:30 to 8:30 pm). Twenty-four of the 28 schools will attend the Georgetown Prep College Night scheduled for Thursday, March 8 (7:00 to 9:00 pm) in the Hanley Athletic Center:

For students just beginning their college search or those seniors making final enrollment decisions, JET College Nights offer opportunities to connect directly with college admissions representatives and to learn what each school has to offer.

Note that JET College Nights are held in
other parts of the country. In fact, the Texas JET just wrapped up last week and tours in Buffalo, Phoenix and greater Cincinnati are scheduled in mid-March. For more information, check directly with any of the 28 AJCU member colleges.
