The past year was a fluid and bizarre time in our history and college admissions and higher education adapted and adjusted quickly. Campus tours are were virtual and opportunities to meet currently enrolled students replaced the traditional college campus visit. Colleges are now welcoming high school students and their families on campus- yet overnight visits are still limited for obvious reasons. SAT/ACT cancellations have led to the largest list of colleges having adapted and again continued their “test optional” approach to college admissions for the 2021-22 year, and students everywhere faced daunting challenges to learning in a year that began online and many extracurricular pursuits were also socially distanced until safety can be assured for all citizens. This leaves our class of 22 students uncertain as their junior year was one of limited opportunities.
