Virginia Tech Virtual Tour – By Real Students on CampusReel

A Virginia Tech virtual tour can be amazing if you know how to use it. CampusReel allows you to virtually tour Virginia Tech 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 Virginia Tech virtual tours.

How effective are Virginia Tech virtual tours?

It depends how you use them. Virginia Tech is a hustling, bustling campus and community. The beauty of Virginia Tech virtual tours on CampusReel is that authentic video tours, made by real students, can be spectacular at capturing the Virginia Tech vibe. We also go well beyond the confines of the Virginia Tech campus by taking you around Blacksburg. 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 Virginia Tech virtual tour replace a traditional in-person visit?

If you cannot visit Virginia Tech in person, then we can honestly say that we believe a CampusReel virtual tour of Virginia Tech is absolutely the most effective and holistic way to understand the Virginia Tech people, campus and community. However, if you do plan on visiting Virginia Tech 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 Virginia Tech in person until you can make a strong educated guess that it’s worth the investment.

What places can I virtually tour at Virginia Tech?

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

What are the downsides of a Virginia Tech virtual tour?

The downside of virtually touring Virginia Tech on CampusReel is that, admittedly, our technology does not yet mimic the exact feeling and experience of visiting Virginia Tech 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 Virginia Tech virtual tour. However, our selection of guides still far outweighs the available perspectives of traditional virtual tour platforms.

What are the benefits of a Virginia Tech virtual tour?

The most obvious benefit of a Virginia Tech 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 Virginia Tech in person. Another often overlooked benefit of a CampusReel virtual tour is that it goes far beyond a traditional in person tour Virginia Tech. 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 Virginia Tech and Blacksburg 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.
