Iron Mountain High School College Tour 2015

Iron Mountain High School students will have the great opportunity to participate in a college campus tour on March 31, April 1, and April 2, 2015.

Iron Mountain High School students will tour six college campuses at the end of March including: Lake Superior State University, Ferris State University, Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University, Michigan State University, and Central Michigan University. A key part of deciding which college to go to is finding a good 'fit.' And the best way to get the most accurate information

[03/26/15]   COLLEGE TOUR REMINDERS

- Snacks—Plan to bring your own snacks for the three days. (We will stop at a few convenience stores/gas stations along the way where you will also be able to fulfill your junk food cravings.)
- Drinks—Cannot bring your own drinks for several reasons. However, there will be a cooler full of water, Propel, Gatorade, etc., provided on the bus. And, we will allow you to purchase your own when we stop along the way.
- Clothing—School dress code applies
- Be sure to wear walking shoes (athletic shoes), as we will do a lot of walking.
- Umbrella
- Raincoat?
- Swimsuit (swimming at hotel)
- Spending Money—We will be going to a really nice mall (River Town Crossings Mall in Grandville) on April 1—no fooling! You will also need to purchase about 3 of your meals for the duration of the trip, so spending money is a must!
- If you would like to watch movies on the bus (school appropriate, of course), please bring them and be sure to write your name on them.
- I don’t expect any problems with this next item, but feel the need to bring it to everyone’s attention. If you would be caught with anything illegal (drugs, alcohol, etc.), you will be turned over to the local law enforcement. Your parents would be called and expected to pick you up immediately to bring you home. (This is a school activity and all rules in the student handbook apply.)

If you have any questions regarding any of these items, see Mrs. Truscott.
