2016-17 Thematic Goal: Maximize Student Success
On January 9, 2017, UNCP rolled out a new interactive, virtual tour designed to bring the experience of our campus to prospective students, alumni, parents, families, and friends. The virtual tour consists of a walking tour module, 360 degree photography, photos, and videos that follow a path across campus from Old Main ending at Lumbee Hall. The 18-stop main tour explores campus, led by a virtual tour guide explaining each stop. Accompanying the main experience is an athletics mini-tour touting the high-quality programs UNCP Athletics offers.
The experience is available using virtual reality headsets, mobile devices, or on any computer at uncp.edu/#virtualtour.
During the month of January, more than 705 visitors took part in the experience from 33 states and 9 countries. Spending an average of just under eight minutes on the tour, nearly 14 percent of the visitors took an action as a result by scheduling a visit, applying for admission, or updating contact information as alumni.
