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

What are the downsides of a UC Berkeley virtual tour?
The downside of virtually touring UC Berkeley on CampusReel is that, admittedly, our technology does not yet mimic the exact feeling and experience of visiting UC Berkeley 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 UC Berkeley virtual tour. However, our selection of guides still far outweighs the available perspectives of traditional virtual tour platforms.
What are the benefits of a UC Berkeley virtual tour?
The most obvious benefit of a UC Berkeley 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 UC Berkeley in person. Another often overlooked benefit of a CampusReel virtual tour is that it goes far beyond a traditional in person tour UC Berkeley. 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 UC Berkeley and Berkeley 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.
