LA ROCHE COLLEGE LAUNCHES YOURCAMPUS360 VIRTUAL TOUR


8/6/2010

PITTSBURGH (PRWEB): August 6, 2010 – La Roche College has partnered with YourCampus360, a leading virtual campus tour provider, to allow prospective students, families, and alumni to experience the school’s campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The immersive virtual walking tour, complete with a guide and 360 degree panoramic views, can be accessed at the visitor’s convenience, and serves as both a preview of La Roche’s scenic 40-acre campus and as a substitute for those students who are unable to travel to the college for a live campus visit.

Dave McFarland, director of the Admissions Office at La Roche, recognized this opportunity to reach more students locally, regionally and around the globe.

“Knowing that our recruitment efforts are far-reaching, I wanted to investigate the possibility of taking students on a unique tour of our campus, and YourCampus360 enabled us to do that,” he said. “We’re pleased to be part of only a small number of colleges and universities nationally to offer this tour.”

YourCampus360, a New York-City based startup, equips college and universities with campus tours on three key platforms: Facebook, the iPhone, and on college and university admissions websites.

“We are proud to be working with La Roche to bring college-bound students one step closer to enrollment,” said Aubree Smith, YourCampus360’s marketing director. “Prospective students and their families can now experience the many highlights of La Roche’s campus in a way that is much more interactive than through photos and video alone.”
