Hi, thank you for the lovely feedback! I am very excited about the college focus at my school, and it's great to hear from a like-minded reader! To answer your questions, yes, most of us promote our alma mater colleges with our classes. It makes for a more personal connection when we can talk firsthand about our experiences back when we were college students. Some of the teachers do pick other colleges when there are duplicates, or when they want a nearby college to make visiting easier. In those cases, the teacher tries to make a personal connection with the college and invite students from the college to visit our school. This helps to keep it personal and relatable for our young students.
All the best,
