Gonzaga University’s associate director of admissions shares why her school partnered with YouVisit to create a virtual campus tour to boost enrollment and more.
Brown University is a private Ivy League institution that’s always looking to the future.
With a history dating back to 1764, the forward-thinking school located in Providence, RI, partnered with YouVisit to create a virtual campus tour. In the immersive 360-degree experience, prospective students and their families gain meaningful knowledge of the school’s campus, history, and culture. Viewable across desktop, mobile, and VR, it’s truly the next best thing to being there in person.
“We think that all prospective students will find value in our new tour–and even current students and alumni will enjoy virtually wandering around current and old haunts.” — Logan Powell, dean of admission
The 12-stop virtual campus tour is narrated by two virtual guides–Brown students Chelse-Amoy Steele and Max Kozlov. The experience showcases buildings like The Perry and Marty Granoff Center for the Creative Arts, the Barus and Holley building (which houses the university’s engineering and the physics departments), and the sprawling Nelson Fitness Center. The tour also provides insight into Brown’s cross-disciplinary research work.
“We know that prospective students are curious about what our campus looks and feels like,” says Logan Powell, Brown’s dean of admission. “With this virtual tour, they can get a sense of Brown’s distinctive academic and cultural experience–as well as the history and beauty of campus–early in the admissions process, even before they visit us in person.”
“We think that all prospective students will find value in our new tour–and even current students and alumni will enjoy virtually wandering around current and old haunts,” Powell adds. “But we are particularly excited to offer students who can’t physically travel to campus a way to ‘visit’ and get a better sense of what Brown is all about.”
