With social distancing the new normal, college admissions staff have had to roll with the reality of putting a campus on hold. The New York Times spoke with Cate Granger Zolkos, dean of admission at Amherst College, and her colleagues at other schools about long-distance campus visits.

“We will enroll, as planned, a typical class of 473 incoming first-year students,” she told the New York Times.

“The admissions staff encourages prospective students to visit the college website, take a virtual tour, and learn more about student life by reading the student blogs linked there,” the Times wrote.
