Virtual Preview Day

Throughout the year, we offer special events to experience #BuffNation. Join students from around the country for special sessions on admissions and financial aid, talk to professors and current students, learn about our academic programs and student life, and get to know what makes Milligan so special. For 2020, these events are virtual events you can experience from the safety of your home.

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool that allows users to meet online, with or without video. You can access it from a web browser on your local desktop computer or a mobile app. We have security controls set to ensure these are safe and private sessions.

To use Zoom you will need:

  • a video camera, either built in to your device or a separate webcam (most modern computers, smartphones and tablets have this built in)
  • a microphone, either built in to your device or in the webcam (most modern computers, smartphones and tablets have this built in), or a phone
  • a broadband internet connection
  • the Zoom client installed on your machine. (Zoom has clients for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android.)‍

You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom meeting. You may be prompted to download the software once you have clicked on the link provided. You also may wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting or our Virtual Preview Day.

If you are using a laptop or desktop computer and don’t have the Zoom client yet, when you click on the link the client will automatically download and then connect you to the call. This usually works well but it takes a little time to go through the installation process, so you may prefer to do the installation manually before the call. If you will be using a smartphone or tablet, you will need to do the manual installation. Whichever path you take is a matter of personal preference.

You can read more about joining a Zoom meeting here.  But don’t worry — just click the link in the schedule above, and you should be fine.
