Fisk University Tour
During your Tennessee adventure, your students should stop in Nashville and visit Fisk University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the city.
This historically black university was first founded in 1866, shortly after the commencement of the Civil War. It is considered to be a National Historic Landmark and is oftentimes visited for the historical aspect of the area. However, its academic aspect is nothing to scoff at, this school earning a national reputation for academic excellence over the years, thanks in large part to its 'outstanding faculty and students'.
While here your group is going to take a 1.5-hour tour of the 40-acre campus, with a brief information session by an admissions counselor, followed by the actual tour of the campus by a student ambassador. After your tour, you will have a chance to eat lunch on campus at Spence Dining Hall and visit the campus spirit store and bookstore. If interested, your group can get more specific with your visit and spend time checking out the School of Humanities and Behavioral Social Sciences (history and political science, behavioral science, arts and language) or the School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Business (business administrations, math and computer sciences, life and physical science).
