What happens leading up to the College March?
How can I find out more about the College March?
The College March is in its 6th year. Annually, on the second Friday in December, college seniors from across the country march their college applications out the front doors of their schools to their local post office or mail truck. Members of their school communities, family members, local business leaders, elected officials, and other supporters turn out to cheer them on. This year, over 2,700 high school seniors from 35 schools in 12 cities across the country marched. More than 1,400 of the seniors from 18 schools marched in New York City, including all the NYC Outward Bound Schools. Find out more information at collegemarch.org.
