Around the U.S. thousands of students are visiting colleges without leaving home.
From a personal computer students can explore hundreds of colleges, getting a 360-degree view of the campus and more.
College advisors at International College Counselors recommend them highly for being informative, free and even highly motivational.
When students have a chance to “stroll” around a campus, the dream becomes more real. The discussion can then turn to grades and what is needed for a student to actually attend.
Locations to be visited include lecture halls, gyms and dormitories. Videos may also include student interviews and perspectives on activities like sports, clubs and Greek life. Other tours include information like nearby places to hike, local things to do, and historical features. Sweet Briar College includes places on campus where ghosts have supposedly been seen.
Many families take road trips. But with students applying to more schools, visiting all the schools can be a challenge. Virtual tours can give a student the sense of a college and help narrow down the search. They can help save a family time and money.
Virtual college tours are also a great opportunity for international students to see what a variety of schools looks like.
But, they’re not a replacement for actual visits. College advisors at International College Counselors recommend that students visit their top schools once they’ve narrowed down their list. During an in-person college visit, students can sit in on actual classes and speak with current students to ask questions.
