College Connections

Middle School Meets NYU

College Connections offers an engaging information session that exposes middle school students (5th-8th grade) to the landscape of higher education. During this session students will learn about why college matters, the college application process, tips for making college affordable, and things to consider when deciding which college or university is the right fit. Every visit concludes with a brief tour of New York University where students will see various academic and student life buildings. 

College Connections sessions are available to middle schools and community based organizations. Groups should be between 15 - 35 students per visit and require a 10:1 student-to-chaperone minimum ratio. 

Due to high demand, we recommend submitting a request at least six weeks in advance. Based on requests received, staff reserve the right to deny requests and/or offer alternative dates that can accommodate your capacity. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at
