Virtual College Tours

By: Rachael Flores

With the spread of COVID-19, most universities took action by closing its campuses for the summer. In order to help prospective students get a better sense of their school, many colleges have established virtual online campus tours. These tours are conducted via video, virtual reality, and/or live sessions. Although some schools schedule tours by appointment, many allow visitors to virtually visit at their own leisure.

Virtual tours have many benefits, including decreased costs, increased tour scheduling flexibility, and the ability to revisit universities at any time. Info sessions are also operated virtually, which allows students and parents to ask questions anytime, anywhere.
