Making College Visits Accessible for ALL Students, The College Tour Offers an Inside Look at Campuses Around the Country from the Comfort of Home.
The College Tour, an innovative series from Emmy-nominated producers Alex Boylan, Lisa Hennessy and Burton Roberts, is now available on IMDb TV, Amazon's premium free streaming service, and across The College Tour platform including its mobile app and website. Hosted by Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, The College Tour is a powerful series created to empower high school students to virtually travel across America for an inside look at colleges and universities.
Each episode of The College Tour highlights a college or university through the eyes of its students, faculty and alumni, providing prospective students with an intimate look at life on campus beyond what is written in brochures or websites. From academics to sports, club activities, city life and much more, viewers can visit the campus of their dreams as they're making the important decision of where to apply or where to attend. The series features a diverse array of universities across the country, from large institutions like Arizona State University and the University of Illinois to small town colleges such as Delaware Valley University and Fort Lewis College, helping students experience each school like never before.
"The College Tour is the show you wished you had when applying for colleges in high school," said Alex Boylan, executive producer, The College Tour. "College visits can cost upwards of $3,000 per school, which puts them out of reach for many students and families. We are leveling the playing field and providing a free, easy and fun way to tour some of the best schools across the country."
"Our episode offered us an innovative way to help prospective students and families to get an in-depth look from the comfort of their own homes when traditional campus visits might be challenging for many families," added Lindsay Nyquist, Director of Marketing and Communications at Fort Lewis College.
