Coe College will offer special tours and activities during Iowa Private College Week (IPCW), Aug. 4-8. Free tours and information sessions will be available for college-bound students and their families at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. daily, departing from the lobby of Stewart Memorial Library.

Sponsored statewide by the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the 2008 event marks the 10th year for the annual campus visit program, held at 29 participating colleges and universities.

At Coe, participants can take part in guided tours of the campus and sit in on information sessions to learn more about academic programs, student life and tips to finance a college education. Several surprises and giveaways are also planned.

Organizers at Coe say the sessions are a good way for students and their families to explore the range and feasibility of private higher education options.

After each campus visit, students will receive a stamp in an IPCW passport, which may be used to waive the application fee at that institution. With three or more stamps (limit two per day), all participating institutions will waive application fees.

IPCW is sponsored by the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (IAICU).
