MISSOULA — It's a big year for many high school seniors, especially those college-bound students who are in their last push to beef up their GPAs and academic resumes.

KPAX talked about college six months ago with a group of Hellgate High School journalism students who produced their own news story for KPAX.

The students interviewed their peers about their college plans and if going out of state was more appealing than attending their hometown school, the University of Montana.

But then, a global pandemic, and that changed how most colleges and universities will function this year. Many won't be bringing students to campus, opting for online instruction instead.

So we gathered those journalism students together again to ask them if the pandemic has changed their opinions, or their plans, about college. You can watch that full conversation in the video above.
