Abstract

In my WKU Honors College Capstone Experience entitled “A Virtual Tour of WKU’s Main Campus,” my task was to create a virtual tour students across the state, country and even around the world could use to view WKU’s campus without ever setting foot in Bowling Green. Throughout this experience, I filmed myself giving individual tour of over 60 different locations on WKU’s campus, with a total of 72 buildings and locations earning markers on the campus map. This virtual tour was created during the summer of 2011 and was completed by November of that same year. Once completed, Admissions Counselors and International Counselors used this Virtual Tour to bring students to WKU. In this same time span (November 2011 to May 2012), the Virtual Tour received over 10,000 unique views, which is the number of IP addresses that log on to www.wku.edu/tour.
