Virtual Tour Provides Prospective Students a First-hand Look at Campus

Introducing YouVisit

Gardner-Webb University is proud to unveil a new tool that will help prospective students get to know the campus from their computer, mobile device or tablet. The YouVisit platform enables students to virtually step onto and experience the campus before they physically set foot on it.

“I’m excited that YouVisit allows students, families, and all visitors to experience Gardner-Webb University whenever they please,” observed Kristen Setzer, vice president for enrollment management. “The immersive tour includes photo and video content that enriches the tour experience, while showcasing what makes Gardner-Webb such a great place to ignite your future. By bringing the campus tour experience to students, we’ve made it more accessible for individuals who may not be able to visit, but still want to see what GWU is all about.”

YouVisit provides audiences with an interactive virtual experience. Users get a real sense of the size and scale of campus—its vibrancy, character and facilities. The virtual tours are led by a virtual student tour guide who provides insights and key information about each stop on the tour.

Each stop begins with a 360-degree panorama of the environment, enabling audiences to experience the entire environment—from the ceiling tiles, to the physical classroom space, and even the surface beneath their feet. Within the tour stops are supplemental media elements such a videos and additional photographs to further expand upon the story.
