COVID-19 -Update as of May 21 2020
During these uncertain times, we hope you and your families are staying safe and healthy. We at goCAMPUSing recognize that the excitement of visiting campuses and prepping for college admissions has looked a little different this semester. We are actively monitoring colleges nationwide as they are determining the steps of when and how to safely re-open.
We’re doing everything we can to ensure that once we get the green light, we can safely continue our mission to find every student their right fit. In order to do so, we are adjusting our operations and procedures, such as adding a physician, who is familiar with COVID-19, to our advisory committee. Additionally, we are consulting with all of our transportation vendors (ground and air travel) about following new state and federal department regulations and are in constant communication with our regular hotel contacts regarding room occupancy and sanitizing procedures.
Internally, we have established various safety precautions to further protect students and chaperones traveling with us going forward. To name a few, every goCAMPUSing college advisor and chaperone will be given a “Non-Touch Temperature Scanner” to check every individual who boards a tour bus, and the interior of each bus will be sanitized regularly throughout the duration of each tour and seating will be assigned to comply with social distancing measures.
We know how important stepping foot on campuses is to our college-bound students, and how exciting it is to ponder future college memories, friendships, and overall success. At goCAMPUSing, we want you to know that we are still here, working hard to help high school students find their “right fit”—academically, socially, and financially. Every student deserves a place to call home where they can be healthy, safe, and thrive.
Thank you for your patience and support during this challenging time – we can’t wait to see you again soon!
