Virtual and Alternative College Tours
Many colleges now offer virtual campus tours, including interactive maps and other tools. Most have a social media presence, including postings by campus organizations, teams, student government, and more. Some academic departments (generally larger schools) have websites and a social media outreach. Some schools include virtual tours of residence halls, suites, and other housing options. You can also look for the school newspaper and alumni association’s online presence. It’s always best to put your feet on campus before making a final decision, but all of these options can help you save time and money (and keep you from missing high school classes!) while you narrow your list of choices.Check out these four sites for virtual tour opportunities: CampsReel, eCampusTours.com, YouVisit and The College Tour.
