What is the Ohio Six College Tour?
The Ohio Six College Tour is an opportunity for high school students (and their families) to visit up to four Ohio colleges/universities in a two-day period. The schools included in the Ohio Six College Tour are: College of Wooster, Denison University, Kenyon College, Oberlin College, Ohio Wesleyan University and Wittenberg University.
During the two days of the Ohio Six College Tour, each participating school will conduct a morning session starting at 9 a.m. and an afternoon session at 2 p.m. Each college/university will create their own unique sessions; however, all programs usually include a campus tour and some type of informational session.
Can’t fit everything in on July 31-Aug. 1? Create your own customized schedule based on your timeframe and schools of interest by adding a visit or two on Aug. 2 and/or Aug. 3. Please feel free to contact the individual schools for further scheduling assistance.
We look forward to seeing you this summer on the 2017 Ohio Six College Tour!

What will I do at each Ohio Six school?
Each college/university implements its own unique programs. Expect an information session and campus tour at each school; however, the format will be different at each school you visit. No matter what, you will leave each school with a sense of the college/university’s personality, facts about the school, and campus layout.
(Individual Requests) What if I want to meet with a coach or have an interview during my visit?
During the Ohio Six College Tour, some schools offer interviews and/or meetings with coaches, while others do not. Please keep in mind that all additional requests are subject to availability; each school will handle additional requests differently. We recommend that you contact each Admissions office directly if you are requesting additional appointments. (Contact information is available in your registration confirmation).
How many guests can I bring on the Ohio Six College Tour?
The Ohio Six College Tour is catered to high school students (mostly rising juniors and seniors). Parents/guardians and other family members are also welcome! There are no limitations on the number of guests that can accompany the visiting student. Since each family is responsible for their own schedule, transportation, accommodations, and food, most parents/guardians choose to accompany their student(s) on the Ohio Six College Tour.
Do I have to visit all six schools?
During the two-day Ohio Six College Tour you are not required to visit all six participating schools. We recommend that you decide which of the six schools you want to visit and plan your route from there. Can’t fit everything in on July 31 and Aug. 1? Create your own customized schedule based on your timeframe and schools of interest by adding a visit or two on Aug. 2 or 3. Please feel free to contact the individual schools for further scheduling assistance.
Who is behind the Ohio Six College Tour?
There is no outside organization behind the Ohio Six. The six schools that are involved collaborate together, to create the opportunity for prospective families to visit up to six phenomenal, private, liberal arts, residential Ohio schools in three days. This is a great opportunity to take advantage of, especially during the beginning of the college search process.
We look forward to seeing you this August on the 2017 Ohio Six College Tour! If these dates do not work for you and your family please note that we would also welcome an individual visit from you anytime throughout the year!
