USF Debuts New Online Campus Tour
TAMPA, Fla. (June 2, 2009) – The Office of University Communications & Marketing is pleased to debut USF’s new online campus tour. The tour can be accessed by visiting the USF home page and clicking on the words Tour USF in the upper right corner of the header.
The tour was designed to enable potential students and their families to get a sense of what life is like on USF’s Tampa campus, and to provide campus visitors with information about the location of buildings, parking lots, and shuttle stops.
The interface is composed of five virtual tours emphasizing different aspects of campus life: academics, student life, USF Health, athletics and research. Each tour features captioned photographs, descriptive text, and links to related university Web sites. A virtual tour highlighting life in the Tampa Bay area is also included.
A key component of the tour is an interactive campus map with photos and descriptions of every building on the Tampa campus and related links. An A-Z index and a key word search feature make it easy for visitors to quickly access information about specific buildings. In addition, the map includes several parking-related layers that can be turned on or off as needed, allowing easy access to specific information about handicapped parking or shuttle stops.
All university students, faculty and staff are invited to view the tour and provide feedback. Please email UCM and let us know what you think.
