CLARK, NJ -  A group of  Arthur L. Johnson High School students jumped on a college-bound  bus tour of Philadelphia-area schools on April 9.  The Pennsylvania  trip was organized by ALJ counselors Molly Cusick and Erica Stasio and made stops at Haverford College, Villanova University and the University of Pennsylvania.

Students visited each campus, toured buildings, learned about majors and programs and had the opportunity to ask current students questions about each school.

According to counselors each school the students visited is diverse in its own way and provided a valuable experience for the students. They described Haverford as a small liberal arts school, Villanova as a medium-sized, suburban university, and U Penn as a large, urban, Ivy League research institution.
