A Colby College virtual tour can be amazing if you know how to use it. CampusReel allows you to virtually tour Colby 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 Colby College virtual tours.
How effective are Colby College virtual tours?
It depends how you use them. Colby College is a hustling, bustling campus and community. The beauty of Colby College virtual tours on CampusReel is that authentic video tours, made by real students, can be spectacular at capturing the Colby College vibe. We also go well beyond the confines of the Colby College campus by taking you around Waterville. 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 Colby College virtual tour replace a traditional in-person visit?
If you cannot visit Colby College in person, then we can honestly say that we believe a CampusReel virtual tour of Colby College is absolutely the most effective and holistic way to understand the Colby College people, campus and community. However, if you do plan on visiting Colby 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 Colby College in person until you can make a strong educated guess that it’s worth the investment.

For your convenience, below is a list of Colby College places you can virtually tour on CampusReel.
What are the downsides of a Colby College virtual tour?
The downside of virtually touring Colby College on CampusReel is that, admittedly, our technology does not yet mimic the exact feeling and experience of visiting Colby 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 Colby 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 Colby College virtual tour?
The most obvious benefit of a Colby 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 Colby College in person. Another often overlooked benefit of a CampusReel virtual tour is that it goes far beyond a traditional in person tour Colby 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 Colby College and Waterville 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.
