Will events still be virtual?

Yes, unfortunately events will still be virtual for now. Currently, we are allowed to host in person events, but in person events require us to have guest limitations. This means that less students are able to come to our event. As a result, we want to focus on having virtual events where more students can attend. However, it ultimately depends on the state of the pandemic and campus guidelines.

What exactly does MCA do?
