Don't Miss the Bus!

 Rediscover Iowa's Diverse Education!


RIDE 2020 is officially cancelled. Of course, we are disappointed, but like most things we are facing, it’s out of our control. Thank you to the host sites who were willing to host high school counselors on your campus. Thank you to the school counselors who were hoping to go on this annual tour of Iowa campuses.

The 2021 RIDE will be in the same region, so watch for information next spring on registration!
RIDE 2021 is slated to visit the following campuses:
Iowa Western Community College
Southwestern Community College
Graceland University
Simpson College
Central College
William Penn University
Indian Hills Community College
Maharishi International University


 RIDE is a three-day bus tour for school counselors, providing a door-to-door, first-hand look at select college campuses and what makes them unique. Each year the RIDE's takes counselors to a variety of colleges in a specific region for tours, hands-on learning, meals and even overnights in residence halls! 

All transportation, meals, and lodging are taken care of by host colleges and Iowa ACAC.

 There is a $25 non-refundable registration fee. All schools represented by registrants who participate in the RIDE will receive a one-year, institutional Iowa ACAC membership for all members of their office. Make sure to share this professional development opportunity with your counseling counterparts throughout the state.

Grad and CEU Credit Information Coming Soon!
