Elmhurst College has partnered with YouVisit, LLC to build a virtual tour of the College’s scenic campus, giving prospective students and other visitors the opportunity to explore the campus from anywhere, on any device.
The campus walking tour allows visitors to obtain more information about, as well as apply to, Elmhurst College. The tour currently is available in English and Vietnamese, to engage global audiences.
“Whether you take the tour instead of—or in addition to—visiting us in person, you’re going to get a great sense of what it’s like to be on our beautiful campus,” said Timothy Ricordati, dean of admission. “What’s more, the tour will show you how close you are to all of the opportunities offered by the City of Chicago.”
YouVisit equips colleges and universities across the country with virtual tours on three key platforms—Facebook, mobile (Android, iPhone and iPad), and college and university websites—and provides students with a realistic perspective of what it is like to live and study at the school.
“Elmhurst College has an idyllic campus situated near a bustling, global city,” said YouVisit’s marketing director, Gordon Meyer. “We expect the new virtual experience to cultivate widespread interest as even more prospective students around the country, and the world, are introduced to the College’s offerings.”
