For Visiting Universities
Throughout the academic year Colegio Roosevelt hosts visiting representatives from colleges, universities and educational organizations from around the world. It is normal to have over one hundred such representatives visit our campus each year. We always try to accommodate the needs and preferences of visiting reps as far as we are able. It is hoped that the information below may help you in planning your visit to our campus.
Depending on the size of the visit a number of different activity formats are available to college reps. These can include: presentations, college fairs, parent sessions, one on one meetings with students and setting up in student areas for face to face meetings during breaks or lunch. We are also happy to have college reps conduct seminars or tutorials on subjects related to college admissions. We are able to make our facilities available to students, parents and counselors from other schools in Lima for these events as well. If you have a preference or special need for your visit be sure to communicate that before you arrive.
The best time to visit is before and during the lunch time for students. This is from 1pm to 2pm. It is not possible for us to pull groups of students out of class to meet with reps at other times. For larger fairs and tours we may be able to arrange alternate times, but this is not guaranteed. Wednesday follows a reduced schedule and is not ideal for a visit. We also regularly host evening events when a college or group of colleges will have only one event during their stay in Lima. College reps are always able to visit us and meet with counselors as our schedule allows, but student meetings need to be arranged at the times above.
Getting Around in Lima
Traffic and delays in Lima can be a real challenge. Our traffic is infamous and if you are not used to it this can present difficulties in keeping your schedule. You will need to allow sufficient time between school visits in order to arrive on time, 45 min to one hour is typical. Although you can easily get taxis on the street, this is not recommended. There are several reliable taxi companies that you can use which can be accessed from mobile apps (see below). It is also possible to arrange rides through Uber. You may also be able to arrange transport through your hotel. If you need assistance with this please contact us.
