Video by ATUS Video Services

Close to 900 fifth-graders from Skagit and Whatcom counties visited Western Washington University today, Oct. 26, to see firsthand what a university campus is like.

The tour kicked off the second year of Compass 2 Campus, a proactive effort that sends trained WWU student mentors into schools in order to get more kids to see themselves as future college students.
