Because many colleges have sent students home and gone to online classes and work from home operations due to Covid-19, many students are not able to make their planned college visits. Fortunately, there are still lots of ways to learn about a school. A number of colleges are offering online admissions briefs and virtual tours. These won’t answer all of your questions, but then neither would an in-person visit. Hopefully what they will give you is a better sense of a school and if it’s one to explore further. Then you can spend time on the college website and social media feeds to find out more details.
In addition to the new admissions sessions I’m listing below, a significant number of colleges also have virtual tours of campus available on YouVisit https://www.youvisit.com/collegesearch/ If you know of other online admissions events, please share them with me.
