CONCORD, NH (AP) - More than 40 high school counselors from around the country took a weeklong bus tour of 12 New Hampshire universities and colleges to get an up-close look at the schools. For the last 41 years, the New Hampshire College and University Council has hosted the tour of the state's higher education landscape. More than 3,000 guidance counselors have taken advantage of the invitation through the years, and more than 20,000 high school seniors around the nation have learned about New Hampshire schools as a result, many of them choosing to come to the state.
