The RIDE is BACK...Don't Miss the Bus!

Rediscover Iowa's Diverse Education (RIDE)


Our famous 3-day bus tour for school counselors provides a door-to-door, first-hand look at select college campuses and what makes them unique. Each year the RIDE 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.

RIDE 2024 visits North Central Iowa - stay tuned for more info!

 The RIDE is designed for school counselors. If space allows, we will support CCTCs.
Feel free to email [email protected] if you are an interested CCTC.

 All high schools represented by RIDE participants will receive a one-year, organizational Iowa ACAC membership, which includes all members of their office. Share this professional development opportunity with your counseling counterparts throughout the seating! 


More information coming this spring!
