College admissions is a pressure-laden time for prospective students, whether they’re avidly exploring, researching, and narrowing their college-going options or determining what their postsecondary future looks like and if college is part of that plan.
Amidst that ambiguity, students continue to rely on online support from others to help them identify their best-fit campus and prepare for new experiences and challenges. College is a collective learning experience, and following the separation and isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear that traditional first-time, first-year students are seeking more interpersonal connections and support as they determine whether to go to college, the best-fit campus for their situation, and how to prepare and navigate the new experience.
