It's just one thing after another...a domino chain.

Tons of potential colonies are also being moved to 2021 since many of the organizations do not know if schools are opening.

Sleeping is one thing- how do you do community bathrooms? There's no way to disinfect a sink after every use. And this affects dorms and greek housing both.

We (our international facilities team that I'm on) are talking about assigning showers, sinks, and lavatories as one strategy for community bathrooms, instead of anyone using whichever one is open.

Our president's suite will now be the quarantine room, since it has its own bathroom.

Yeah, this is going to be tough. There are so many things we just can't control. So far, I'm really impressed with our members and how they'e handling all of this.

You just know that PNMs are going to complain that with virtual recruitment, the sororities pre-selected their classes and didn't get to meet the girls who didn't have connections. Well, I'm not sure what else they can do.

If this all ends and Covid is magically gone for Fall 2021 recruitment, what will THAT look like? Just like the Class of 2021 is likely going to have to fight their way into college against the masses of gap year/deferred 2020’s, is recruitment going to be overwhelmed as well? Yikes.

Iím so curious to see how virtual recruitment works! The incoming freshmen are solidly in ďGen ZĒ, born in 2001/2002 and have lived their entire lives online. They were toddlers when Facebook was founded, and before starting middle school, Snap Chat and Instagram were born. The oldest Zís are just starting to graduate from college and may identify more as millennials just as many of the oldest millennials identify culturally as Gen Xers.

My friends with high school aged kids (mine is younger) say they have really realized over the past 2.5 months how well these kids keep up with their friends without even seeing them. They just live online together.

So even though formal in-person recruitment is yet another life milestone (along with prom, graduation, etc) that is being robbed of them by this pandemic, they are the best equipped freshmen class yet to navigate a virtual recruitment.
