After the trip, students shared feedback about the day. During the college tour at SUNY Albany, one of the most interesting sites was the School of Business, which was originally built in the 1960s. In 1974, it was the first school to be accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. A new, state-of-the-art School of Business was opened in 2013.  The technology presented in the school mesmerized the students.

The Capital Tour led students to the Legislative Building, where laws are passed.  The building has a few sections, all with a distinctive style of architecture because they were designed by 4 different architects.

The Sergeant-at-Arms, Head of Security for the Premise, who has been working there for 40 years, spoke with students during the tour.  He described his experiences there, starting as an intern and making his way up the ranks.  He advised students to exercise their civic duty by paying attention to their local representatives and the decisions made which affect them.
