Prospective students can now get a virtual view of the Georgia State experience, thanks to a new initiative recently launched by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
The online campus tour, located on the GSU homepage and on the admissions web site, gives students the opportunity to learn more about life at Georgia State. Current GSU students, world-renowned faculty members, and even Football Coach Bill Curry give video tours of the GSU experience. Visitors to the site can learn about life in the city, campus housing and tour buildings from Freshman Hall to the Student Recreation Center.
“This dynamic virtual tour allows students a great opportunity to get to know GSU and see real students on campus,” said Scott Burke, Assistant Vice President for Undergraduate Admissions. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase GSU in this way.”
The Office of Undergraduate worked with Atlanta-based RealView TV to create videos, which show current GSU students and faculty members discussing the opportunities available to students. GSU students explain city living and the culture of downtown Atlanta, using their own experiences to guide prospective students through an interactive experience. RealView TV designs virtual campus tours for colleges and universities across the United States.
Prospective students can get a better sense of the campus with an interactive virtual map, which offers a visual tour of many of GSU’s buildings.
“We encourage prospective students to take the virtual tour at home and then come and visit us in person,” Burke said.
