If you are worried about college campus closings and having to make last minute accommodations, you shouldn’t wait and see what happens. According to Pierre Huguet of H&C Education Consulting, a college consultancy firm, the absolute best step you can take is to start planning now.
“Do not wait until school officials announce they’re closing dorms or won’t be delivering food to your dorm,” he says. Students and families should come up with a concrete plan that would fit their finances and be logistically realistic in the event of a last-minute closure. This includes lining up access to food and lodging so they can adapt to online learning as smoothly as possible if campuses and dorms close.
