The Metropolitan Universities Tour

The Metropolitan University Tour

What do Dallas, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Boston, Miami and New York all have in common? All of these cities are synonymous with thriving business communities, hubs of cultural and educationally enriching experiences, dynamic landscapes, and welcoming urban environments. Each city also has an accompanying university that enables students to enjoy a great education at one of the best schools in America and while reaping the benefits of living in a world-renowned city.

The Metropolitan Tour will introduce you to five of the top research institutions in the country located in five of America’s best college cities. And we mean college cities—not just college towns. These locations have far more to offer than collegiate football and the attractions on Main Street. Internships, research opportunities, K-12 education, medical, graduate, and law schools, professional sports, festivals, and world-class cuisine all abound in these locations.

Come learn about SMU, The George Washington University, Tulane University, Northeastern University, University of Miami and New York University as we team up to introduce prospective students to the academic, interdisciplinary and social experiences possible at each of our five unique institutions. Join admission representatives from each school while we share the unique aspects of our schools and cities as well as tips for the application process.
