A Bates College virtual tour can be amazing if you know how to use it. CampusReel allows you to virtually tour Bates College through hundreds of videos, images and exploratory technologies. Have you ever seen a virtual tour like this? Probably not. See below for commons questions around Bates College virtual tours.

How effective are Bates College virtual tours?

It depends how you use them. Bates College is a hustling, bustling campus and community. The beauty of Bates College virtual tours on CampusReel is that authentic video tours, made by real students, can be spectacular at capturing the Bates College vibe. We also go well beyond the confines of the Bates College campus by taking you around Lewiston. In traditional virtual tours, you will mostly see still, unengaging images and will not see the surrounding area at all – which is why CampusReel virtual tours are so important.

Can a Bates College virtual tour replace a traditional in-person visit?

If you cannot visit Bates College in person, then we can honestly say that we believe a CampusReel virtual tour of Bates College is absolutely the most effective and holistic way to understand the Bates College people, campus and community. However, if you do plan on visiting Bates College and other colleges in person, we strongly recommend that you at least prescreen your college options on CampusReel before spending the time and money to visit. Most prospective families find that as soon as the step on campus, they instantly know whether or not they like the school – but they’ve already spent all that time and money getting there! Our goal is to eliminate all the time and money visiting Bates College in person until you can make a strong educated guess that it’s worth the investment.

What places can I virtually tour at Bates College?

For your convenience, below is a list of Bates College places you can virtually tour on CampusReel.

What are the downsides of a Bates College virtual tour?

The downside of virtually touring Bates College on CampusReel is that, admittedly, our technology does not yet mimic the exact feeling and experience of visiting Bates College in person. We are working on this though! A common request we also receive from users is to add more perspectives (e.g. student guides) to the platform. Rest assured we are working on adding more CampusReel guides to the Bates College virtual tour. However, our selection of guides still far outweighs the available perspectives of traditional virtual tour platforms.

What are the benefits of a Bates College virtual tour?

The most obvious benefit of a Bates College virtual tour on CampusReel is that is can be accessed from anywhere. This can save families a lot of time and money compared to visiting Bates College in person. Another often overlooked benefit of a CampusReel virtual tour is that it goes far beyond a traditional in person tour Bates College. Campus visits are limited both in time and scope – how are you expected to truly understand a college in a 1 hour tour? That’s why we stress the added benefit of CampusReel virtual tours – experience Bates College and Lewiston during different seasons, days of the week, and even hours of the day. What’s game day like? What is finals week life? Again, traditional virtual touring platforms don’t include this benefit.
