Virtual Opportunities

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, college campuses may or may not be open to visitors — which makes it critically important to take advantage of all virtual opportunities to connect with admissions officers.

Explore the sidebar below to read descriptions of the various events being offered in Fall 2020.

Carnegie Mellon Virtual Experience Series

Carnegie Mellon is hosting a series of virtual experiences that will allow students to learn more about various aspects of life at Carnegie Mellon, including:

All online events are accessible by Zoom or phone, and students are welcome to invite their family to join them.

Turn Tartan Experience

This fall, we’re hosting Turn Tartan Experience, Carnegie Mellon University’s online open house event for prospective students. The program kicks off Sunday, September 20th with programming throughout the following six weeks.

By attending our Turn Tartan Experience, you will have the opportunity to experience Carnegie Mellon by choosing which sessions you’d like to attend. Sessions include:

  • Academic college & department information sessions
  • Virtual tours of campus & residence halls
  • Student panels
  • Coffee with the deans
  • Mock classes

You can see more of our Turn Tartan Experience offerings here!

All online events are accessible by Zoom or phone, and students are welcome to invite family, friends or counselors to join them. If they’re not able to attend a live session, many of the sessions will be recorded and posted to our website.

Virtual Options at Fordham

As we consider the different learning environments you may be experiencing this fall, we at Fordham want to provide as much support and access as possible for your students to engage with us. In lieu of our regular in-person travel, we’re providing a menu of virtual visit options.

Attend Fordham Hosted Virtual Events
These programs are our most in-depth and accessible, requiring only your promotion to your students. We’ll take care of the rest, including registration and hosting! This option is ideal, especially if you’re unable to host a visit or your students want to connect to Fordham on a flexible schedule.

We recommend one or more of the following programs:

  • Guided Virtual Tour (with current Fordham students)
  • Virtual Hello (hosted by your representative; later times)
  • Virtual Information Session (live, hosted presentation; weekend options)
  • Virtual Ram Session (topic-based, e.g. financial aid or majors; later times)

Virtual Opportunities

We have several online opportunities for students to learn more about Georgia Tech. Please check our first-year visits page for information about our upcoming prospective student webinars, small group discussions, academic sessions, and live virtual campus tours led by Tech tour guides.

Virtual Campus Visits

We know that most students are not planning to visit campuses anytime soon. But we have decided to make a very limited number of in-person visit opportunities available to those students who are able to get here. Obviously, this visit experience is not like what we would offer in a typical year, but some spaces are still available to do a tour and information session on campus through early November.

In the meantime, we are pleased to offer everyone and anyone the option of participating in our virtual visit program! Wednesdays and Saturdays, we offer a campus tour (a real student narrating a pre-recorded video), an information session, and a chat with current students. It’s not the same as being here in person – but we think it’s a pretty close substitute!

Visit Mount Mary this fall!

Interested in visiting Mount Mary? We’re offering multiple visit options this fall, including Virtual Visits, Individual Visits, Saturday Visits and webinars to fit your schedule and needs.
In-Person Visits:
  • Individual visit (on-campus)
  • Saturday visits (on-campus)

Virtual Visits:

Virtual Advising Appointment

As we continue to transition to a virtual world, we’re working to provide many opportunities for students to engage with Trinity and learn about the college admissions process. We are now offering students the option to schedule a virtual one-on-one advising appointment with an admissions counselor. These informal conversations are a great opportunity to get questions answered and discuss college interests.

There are other ways to learn about the Trinity experience as well. Students can visit our website to register for an information session, take a virtual tour, sign up for a college interview, or connect with a current Trinity student with similar academic interests.
