Spring College Field Trip -- Illinois State University and Eureka College, Wednesday, May 1, 2019

We are excited to offer our spring field trip to two great schools -- Illinois State University and Eureka College. This trip will be open to juniors only and we can take a maximum of 45 students. This trip will be a wonderful opportunity for students to see the difference between a large, public university and a small, private university so they can get a better idea of what would be a better fit for them. Because of the distance from BHS, we will not return to school until 6PM so students will need to provide their own ride home. Permission forms will be available closer to the trip. Please contact Mr. Young at (815) 547-4809 or with any questions.
