Colleges and universities across the US are canceling in-person classes, information sessions, and admissions tours due to coronavirus. Many are developing virtual learning platforms and enhancing their virtual tours. For seniors planning to visit, choosing colleges after receiving acceptance may be challenging. Likewise, many juniors are unable to travel for spring break college tours.
To help mitigate this issue, a growing number of virtual admissions events are being offered. Students can check out individual college websites and blog posts and use Google or Facebook to find these campus preview opportunities.
Visiting colleges online can be extremely helpful for exploring schools.
