Description of Tours: Students drive or rideshare with classmates & WE plan the tour
Have you ever walked around a California College Campus? Peer Mentor Student Tour Guides are often International and/or bilingual students. We get to hear about their experiences and ask questions. Sometimes we visit both the Newark and Fremont Campuses. The Ohlone College Fremont Campus has changed a lot since we started the tours. It’s great to see the construction progress each tour. The views from the hill are beautiful and clear -- sometimes we can see across to the Santa Cruz Mountains.  If we are lucky, we ALSO get to visit or interact with a College ESL Class and talk to real students. Often we see former FACE students. Visualize your dreams.  Visit a college campus soon.
Since 2013, Fremont Adult School has organized one or two Ohlone College tours each year for ALL students to attend, regardless of program. Please check back for current information.  Our sixth (7th) tour will take place in Spring of 2017.  

Four of these tours have been organized through AB85 and South Alameda County Consortium (SACC) relationship-building efforts. These 4 tours have been a collaboration among Ohlone College (www.ohlone.edu), New Haven Adult School (NHAS) (adsweb.nhusd.k12.ca.us), and Fremont Adult & Continuing Education (FACE) (www.face.edurepresentatives made possible through the dedication of amazing education professionals.  Info for Newark Adult Education Center (NAEC) [MacGregor Alternative Education] (http://macgregor-nusd-ca.schoolloop.com/cms/page_view?d=x&piid=&vpid=1246162179784)

Why visit Ohlone College [or any college]? There are many reasons…
  1. You need to plan ahead for college: 6 months to 1 year minimum is best, even 2 years ahead is good. 
  2. Visiting a college or university campus can help you visualize your goals!
  3. Parents should familiarize themselves on behalf of their High School children.
  4. Colleges are a vital community center There are many sports, arts & entertainment activities that regularly occur there. You may have to go there at some point.  Good idea to know your way around.
  5. Ohlone college Fremont campus is a hiking trailhead for a less strenuous route to Mission Peak.
  6. From the Fremont campus there are beautiful views of the whole bay area and there is a pretty duck pond near the cafeteria where we always enjoy taking photos and relaxing for a few moments.
  7. From the Newark campus enjoy a butterfly garden and a view across the Bay wetland marshes to the hangars at Moffet Field.
  8. There used to be a super flea market in Fremont for the past 28 years.  With community support it could open again in 2018.
