The C.O.W.S. Tour (Counselors Observing Wisconsin Schools)

The COWS tour is a four-day tour of distinctive Wisconsin Colleges and Universities. Counselors will visit Marquette University, Beloit College, Ripon College and Lawrence University.

The tour typically takes place in mid-April and is by invitation only. The only cost to participate is a $300 non-refundable deposit. The COWS tour will pay for your airfare to and from Wisconsin, transportation between the colleges, overnight accommodations, and meals (Monday through Thursday lunch) during the tour.

Invitations typically are e-mailed in early December. The tour is filled on a first-come, first-served basis and the 30 available seats fill quickly. Only one counselor from an institution may attend in the same year.
