Wild West Bus Tour

Join us for the annual RMACAC Wild West Bus Tour, a multi-day bus tour of colleges and universities across the RMACAC region.  Each year, we explore a different set of schools across Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, or Utah. You will spend time on each campus meeting faculty, staff, and students, and learning about each institution’s unique programs.

2019 RMACAC Wild West Bus Tour

RMACAC Professional Development Chair

The RMACAC Wild West Bus Tour is a professional development opportunity for high school counselors, independent consultants working with high school students, and graduate students earning a degree in high school counseling to learn more about a few of the outstanding colleges and universities throughout our five-state region.

This year we will be touring the great states of Colorado and New Mexico. Pack your boots and join us as we explore five different campuses over four days. You will learn about each institution’s unique programs as we meet faculty, staff, and students. Participants should expect very warm weather, full days, and walking tours on each campus. Please keep in mind that we are at a higher elevation in Colorado and New Mexico, so plan accordingly.
