With summer just around the corner, high school juniors and seniors are typically chomping at the bit to start touring their bucket list universities and soon after, seize their independence on their way to college. This year, that journey may look a little different. To adhere to their state’s health and safety precautions, most schools have suspended in-person campus tours—however, many still offer virtual tours. So rest easy teens (and parents), you can now tour your future college campus right from the comfort of your living room couch.
These schools have developed 360-degree view videos that walk you through campus life, housing options, academic buildings and more. The graphics are interactive to make the virtual experience feel as realistic as possible. Some schools even give you the opportunity to schedule an online information session, where a university representative will present a live overview of the school, plus provide you with the opportunity to ask questions. You can also request a virtual meeting with academic colleges to discuss their specific program.
For those looking to remain in-state, the majority of private and public universities offer virtual tours, including the following:
- Ohio State University
- Ohio University
- Miami University
- Bowling Green
- University of Cincinnati
