As Admissions staff members approach a busy fall recruitment season, they will continue to face uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic when planning traditional high school visits.
Jodi Chycinski, associate vice president and director of Admissions, said staff members will remain nimble as the season of high school visits, college fairs and other events approaches.
"There are a lot of unknowns in terms of what we will be allowed to do for regular recruiting events," Chycinski said. "We are approaching this recruitment season with multiple plans so that we can adjust quickly to the needs of prospective students."
Admissions staff members were among the few employees who regularly worked on campus during the summer of 2020. In-person campus tours restarted in July of that year, starting with small groups then progressing to larger groups as safety precautions and guidelines changed.
The 112-seat Laker Experience Suite, within the Lubbers Student Services Center, allowed guests to be socially distant during Admissions presentations.
