FAIRFAX, Va. — Spring is normally a busy time on college campuses with prospective students visiting and newly-admitted students stopping by to get ready for the fall semester. Now, these visits are becoming virtual because of necessary precautions associated with COVID-19.
All week, Virginia This Morning has been taking viewers on some of these virtual experiences.
Today, we head up I-95 to Fairfax to check out George Mason University, home of the Patriots.
While it’s quieter than normal on Mason’s campus, the admissions team is continuing to work with students and families every day — just in a virtual format.
“More than anything, I want students and families to know we are here for you to answer your questions and just guide you in this new normal in a virtual environment,” said Dean of Admissions, Amy Takayama-Pérez.
The team has put together one easy-to-access webpage where you can find webinars, virtual information sessions, video tours of campus and special features.
"You can see the best of our faculty, staff and students and what it means to be part of Mason Nation," said Takayama-Pérez.
