YouVisit Virtual Tours

Let Students Experience Your Campus From Anywhere

CHALLENGE

With fewer students physically visiting colleges before applying, you need a virtual solution to convey campus culture, differentiate yourself from other institutions, and tell your unique story.

SOLUTION

An immersive, virtual college tour provides critical access to your school, especially when students are unable to visit campus in person, and moves students through the recruitment funnel at a higher rate.

RESULTS

Not only do prospective students spend 4X more time on an YouVisit virtual tour than a traditional .edu webpage, but they also apply at a 60% higher rate and have an 8X higher inquiry-to-deposit rate.

A virtual tour offers a tangible campus experience to students who are making important decisions about their college plans.

HOUSTON BAPTIST UNIVERSITY

James Steen, VP of Enrollment Management

"No way could we generate the volume of leads or applications without EAB Enrollment Services and the application generation engine that EAB does very very well.  No way could we replicate that on our own.  What EAB does for my team is invaluable.  I am always always happy.  I am proud to tell others who we use and how we use EAB Enrollment Services because we have had phenomenal success."

MICHIGAN TECHNOLOGICAL UNIVERSITY

John Lehman, PhD, Vice President for University Relations and Enrollment

“We signed on with a one year contract last year, got in halfway through the cycle. We went to an EAB roundtable with the other new clients. We heard these stories that we could expect 25-35% increases in apps. We walked out of your building and asked each other "are they all actors?" So far this year, we are up 27% in apps over last year (Feb. 2020), so it has fully met our expectations of feeding the top of the funnel."

A Look into One of Our Recent Award Winners:

As one of the top-ranking colleges in the world, with an acceptance rate of only 12%, the US Air Force Academy (USAFA) is duty-bound to reach the best of the best through its recruitment strategy. However, finding the high-achieving students and athletes built to survive the rigors of military life is like finding a needle in a haystack. Prospective students are inundated with options when it comes to choosing their educational path, and with each new class it becomes more challenging to cut through the noise. USAFA needed an extraordinary recruitment campaign to attract extraordinary students.

To help students discover all that USAFA offers, the Academy partnered with YouVisit to create an exceptional, multi-part, 360° digital experience that allows students and their families to experience what it’s like to learn, live, and fly as a cadet at the USAFA. The experience can be accessed from their website, across all devices, and was highlighted as a communal immersive theater event inside the historic planetarium at the Air Force Academy campus outside Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Through this adrenaline-fueled experience, prospective students can truly immerse themselves in the daily life of a cadet and experience firsthand what it’s like to pilot a glider, parachute into a football game, fight in a war simulation, and work on a project with a NASA scientist. Through this project, each week thousands of visitors discovered the historic campus, and USAFA exceeded their recruitment goals for the next generation of military leaders. Additionally, USAFA saw the development of an out-of-home immersive experience as an opportunity to create and host an educational program for K-12 students and visitors in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) with the goal to encourage young people to become future leaders in STEM careers.
