VITERBO UNIVERSITY DEBUTS VIRTUAL CAMPUS TOUR

LA CROSSE, Wis. – Prospective students and others will now be able to “virtually visit” Viterbo University via a state-of-the-art virtual campus tour featuring an interactive 3-D walking tour of campus, complete with 360 degree panoramic views and a tour guide.

The Viterbo virtual campus tour debuted this week and is available on the university website homepage and http://www3.viterbo.edu/#virtualtour. As the number and geographic range of Viterbo’s student applicants continue to grow, the virtual tour is a valuable tool that allows users to explore campus and learn other important information about the university.

“Statistics show that 75 percent of students will enroll at a college they have visited,” said Rob Forget, Viterbo dean of admission. “Viterbo students are coming from farther and farther away, so not all of our prospective students are able to physically visit our La Crosse campus. The virtual tour provides an opportunity for them to visit our campus from the comfort of their home computer, ultimately encouraging them to take the next step in the enrollment process.”

The virtual tour is also perfect for international students, busy adult students, and online students, Forget said.

Viterbo had a record number of applicants last year, and the university enrolls an increasing number of students from across the country. Forget said several factors attribute to this, including the Internet and online platforms, outstanding academic programs, and the recruitment efforts of the athletics programs.
