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.

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