The University of North Carolina System will host its first-ever virtual open houses for aspiring students to learn more about the campus communities.

Under normal circumstances, open houses allow prospective students to explore their academic options in person.

But COVID-19 has added to the complexities of attending on-campus events, so UNC is scheduling virtual Open House sessions highlighting all 16 system universities October 26th through October 30th.

According to a news release, each school will offer a thirty-minute presentation featuring faculty, staff, and current students. Admissions counselors will also be on hand in separate chat rooms.

One UNC official is calling these events game changers, offering an open house experience that is safe and affordable for everyone, no matter where they live.

The sessions will be open to students, families, and high school counselors.

Registration is required and can be done through the UNC System website.
