Virtual tour helps visitors explore life as a Bulldog
Mar 18, 2020, by Staff Writer

Bryant’s virtual tour lets visitors explore the University’s award-winning campus, and get a taste of Bulldog pride, from anywhere in the world. The online experience offers an insider’s view of a community designed to foster excellence both in and outside the classroom – and one that’s also a great place to call home. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the tour is mobile friendly. It even includes a virtual reality component. 

The virtual tour gives you a great introduction to life on Bryant’s campus,” says Rebecca Eriksen, Director of Campus Visit Experience, noting that great care was taken to bringing virtual visitors the full Bryant experience. “You can start to learn what it’s like to be a Bryant Bulldog without leaving your home.” 

“The virtual tour makes you feel like you are really walking the campus. And, with a helpful tour guide at your side, it touches upon everything that Bryant has to offer.”

The next best thing to being there

From the moment online visitors start the virtual experience at Bryant’s iconic Archway, they are fully immersed in University life. A guided tour, led by a virtual host, allows visitors to walk at their own pace and take in the beautiful 435-acre campus. Or, if they’d like, they can jump directly to one of 17 different destinations, such as the George E. Bello Center for Information and Technology, the Ronald K. and Kati C. Machtley Interfaith Center, the residence halls and townhouses, or the Fisher Student Center.

Interactive elements such as videos and 360 degree panoramic views enable an in-depth look at areas such as classrooms, athletic facilities, and residence halls. “The virtual tour makes you feel like you are really walking the campus,” says Amy Steere, Coordinator of Campus Visits. And Hillary, the virtual tour guide, "touches upon everything that Bryant has to offer.”

“There’s more to a campus than the academic buildings and residence halls. It’s about fit. It’s about knowing you’ll be attending an institution that will support you and help you to be your best.”

A great place to live and learn

The tour goes beyond stunning views by also offering information about Bryant’s history, traditions, features, and resources. Viewers get a glimpse of the transformative 24/7 Bryant experience, which purposefully combines student life and academics to inspire excellence. You can watch the men’s basketball team make a game-winning shot in the Chace Wellness Center, learn about the creation of Bryant’s award-winning Quinlan/Brown Academic Innovation Center, and even check out new features such as the University's just-opened Lemongrass Kitchen. 

“There’s more to a campus than the academic buildings and residence halls,” says Eriksen, who notes that more than 80 percent of Bryant’s students live on campus, where they enjoy the campus’s close-knit friendly community and warm, small-town atmosphere. “It’s about fit. It’s about knowing you’ll be attending an institution that will support you and help you to be your best.”
