4Virtual college tours are a great way to learn more about colleges before making the trip to a college campus for an actual college visit. There are a few ways to find virtual tours of college campuses.
- College websites. Check out the college websites for virtual tours. Each tour found on the institution websites will look different and will contain different information, but will really show you the personality of the campus.
- It’s Nacho (Formerly YOUniversityTV.com). You will find hundreds of colleges with virtual tours on this site. The videos are all very similar with the same type of information (location, majors, enrollment, admissions, cost and financial aid information). These videos introduce viewers to real students and professors from the college. Plus, you can get a real feel for the campus.
- CollegeClickTV. This website does not offer virtual tours, but does introduce us to people associated with the colleges. You might see interviews with students sharing their experience at the institution, professors telling us what makes their program unique, or even local business owners talking about the surrounding community. Some colleges have only a few videos and others have over one hundred.
- eCampusTours. This website features over 1,300 college and universities. Each college profile includes 360 degree views of many locations on the college campuses.
