Out of concern for your health and that of our communities,  we have made the difficult decision to discourage in-person visits at this time, although we plan to accommodate individual visits at a later date. 
Of course, a virtual visit is not the same as coming to see for yourself. We hope that you can get a sense of the school and a feeling for your future colleagues and mentors,  even while you stay safely in place.
