UNC Marks Virtual Decision Day While Continuing to Help Students Navigate Decisions

May 1, 2020

On Friday, May 1, the University of Northern Colorado joined universities across the state and nation in celebrating Virtual Decision Day.

Typically, May 1 marks the day when most students have decided on a college. Last year, Klawz showed up at a local high school with balloons and Bear gear and took pictures with students who had committed to UNC. This year, the celebration is taking place virtually with posts on social media.

“This incoming class of Bears is making their way through adversity during an especially poignant time in their lives, and we’re proud of their resilience,” said Whitney Bonner, UNC’s interim director of Recruitment. “Even though we have to celebrate from afar, we want them to know we can’t wait for them to start their UNC careers.”

The day before Decision Day, UNC President Andy Feinstein announced tenative plans for UNC reopening for on-campus learning this August. Bonner hopes this news allows students to get more excited about their college experience and in joining the Bears community. At the same time, she acknowledges that many students are still dealing with unforeseen circumstances that may affect their college plans.

“We know many are still making decisions,” she said. “Our team, and other members of the UNC campus community, are working hard to help students and their families navigate the changes caused by COVID-19.”
