Deciding on which college to attend is often a difficult and time-intensive process. From learning about academic programs and financial aid to better understanding a college’s extracurricular dis, prospective students can easily get overwhelmed by the amount of new information that is now available to them. To help prospective students in their selection process Nevada State College recently created a Virtual Campus Tour that allows users to get an intimate look at the campus without having to step foot on its grounds.
Our Virtual Camps Tour is an interactive tool designed to introduce potential students and the larger community to Nevada State College, said Courtney Hafen, an academic advisor in the Office of the Provost. Through video captures, the tour also allows potential students to meet current students and faculty in order to get a real feel of the positive learning environment on our campus.
Who We Are
Led by a current NSC student, the tour begins with a video introduction of the campus and step-by-step guide through the process of becoming an enrolled student. Starting with the admissions office, an online application and submittal of transcripts, students may be admitted within minutes of applying. The video tour then highlights resources available to students such as the Centralized Advising Academic Center, the Student Academic Center and the Resource Center for Students with Disabilities.
The second segment of the Virtual Campus Tour allows prospective students to explore each of NSC’s dynamic academic concentrations. From the School of Education, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences to the School of Nursing, prospective students have the opportunity to meet several devoted NSC professors and current students as they share the highlights of each degree program.
The campus tour then includes a video segment featuring student life outside of classroom activities. Additionally, NSC students share their views on the significance of their involvement in student-run organizations, community service activities, pre-professional clubs and the NSC Student Alliance (the student government). Opportunities to become involved in extracurricular activities are available to students of all degree programs.
Finally, prospective students may become acquainted with each of NSC’s campus locations through the virtual map tool. The map renderings provide a birds-eye view of each NSC building, noting the location of integral offices and departments in order to assist prospective students in navigating their way around the campus.
Future developments planned to break ground near the Liberal Arts and Sciences building are also detailed on the virtual map.
