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

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.
