Now Google Maps Wants to Be Your College Advisor

Can’t get on the road to make a campus tour for your prospective college student? Google Maps is here to help. Thanks to their maps, Street View, and Pegman, you can now take walking tours of hundreds of the world’s best universities from your own home. Beats paying for airfare or gas!

Street View hops off the streets for these college tours, taking you through all the large and small walkways that wind through the world’s finest institutions of higher learning. You can take in the beachside vibe of the University of Miami, the classic trappings of Georgetown, or the Atlantis that is now UCLA.

Hundreds of schools are already up on Street View, with 36 new ones, including the University of Miami, Georgetown, and Canada’s University of Regina, being added recently.
