KENOSHA COUNTY — High school seniors have a lot of decisions to make with college, and COVID-19 is not making it any easier.
Usually, Carthage College would offer tours with 30 students and their parents. But now, it is one at a time.
Worries over the spread of coronavirus shrunk the number of student ambassadors from a dozen to one. Jamie First started giving in-person tours again late last month.
“It's nice that you can connect with the families a lot more and answer their individual questions," said First.

Nicola Betz, a senior at Yorkville High School in Illinois appreciates being able to see what her future could look like in person, “It's not the same as doing a virtual tour a lot of people think it is definitely a different experience walking around so it's really nice.”
So does her father John, who is not a fan of virtual tours, “Being here is much better so you can feel if its a fit if you really like it. Asking questions directly and follow ups are so much harder than dealing with the chats online.”
Here’s your Rebound Rundown:
- Carthage College has a two-week wait to get an in-person tour.
- Virtual tours are still available.
