Crusaders Coast through 2018 College Run

CR18_D5_009The Brother Martin College Run is a great opportunity for our students to travel outside the New Orleans area, as well as the South, and explore what other universities and cities have to offer. Our Crusaders became familiar with the admissions process and gained valuable experience and insight that will ultimately aid in their college search. The group visited 11 universities along the way including Villanova, West Point, Virginia Tech, and Georgia to name a few.

In addition to the college information sessions and campus tours, the students were given the opportunity to enjoy the social aspect of each city such as a Mets game at Citi Field, the 9/11 Museum, Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, a boat tour on the Hudson River, and some free time in New York City.  In Philadelphia, the students enjoyed an authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwich, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, and a visit to see ‘Rocky’ at the Museum of Art.

Riding roller coasters at Kings Dominion amusement park and white water rafting on the Ocoee River were also highlights of this action-packed trip.  The camaraderie between students and teachers and the memories made on this trip will last a lifetime!
