The Future of the Campus Tour
Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed
Campus tours are back, but most of them differ from how they were before COVID-19. They are smaller, and officials believe that's making them more personalized. They frequently require preregistration and sometimes a health assessment (by those on the tour, in advance).
College leaders are navigating carefully, with a focus on thinking outside the box. They also realize that the Delta variant could, at any moment, add an entirely new dynamic to the process.
