February 2021

Winter — and the pandemic — doesn't need to be a barrier to college visits. Families have many options, including:

  1. Using our searchable interactive calendar to find group events. (Most are still virtual, but we anticipate more in-person group visits will be offered once more people are vaccinated.)
  2. Taking online virtual tours on their own time when it's most convenient to them.
  3. Scheduling virtual one-on-one appointments with admissions staff.
  4. Signing up for private on-campus visits. Many of our colleges are offering limited in-person visits for individual families.

Minnesota Private College Week canceled

Given the uncertainties of COVID-19, our member colleges have decided against holding Minnesota Private College Week this year. The annual event held the last week of June will return in 2022. Instead, we’ll be encouraging students and families to consider a variety of summer explorations options, including the four options above. We are continually adding new events to the calendar and are making sure all other information is up to date.
