London College Tour – University of Oxford and Cambridge

Day 2 included a quick lesson in counting coins over coffee in the city of London to a train ride into the charming Cambridge area in the countryside.

Pacific Northwest Tour – Oregon State & Linfield College

Polar opposites here! We couldn’t have chosen two more different institutions to explore.
