Campus Tours Legwork

April 10th, 2012 by Erick Beck

As promised, our major project for this spring is going to be working with Admissions to provide a campus wide virtual tour. A third party vendor has been selected to supply the central campus tour, but we want to flesh out the site beyond their offering and provide our own supplemental information on the areas that they don’t cover.

Our team is in the process of collecting locations to add. We will then start creating photos, panoramas, and videos of the selected locations. We need your help with coming up with this list. We can’t tour each and every building on campus looking for the interesting spots to feature, but you are in those building every day. If your building has some sort of interesting feature, collection, or display — either inside or outside the building — please let us know.

Also let us know if you already have some sort of tour, photo collection, or anything else that highlights your part of campus. We plan to make this system extensible enough that we can link to or otherwise include your content. If you have old content but think it is time to upgrade, also get in touch with us. We are actively looking for partners in providing online content.

  1. We would love to have the Texas A&M Foundation’s headquarters in the Jon L. Hagler Center featured in the virtual tour! We have a ton of amazing photos shot by National Geographic photographer Rob Kendrick. The Gruy Fountain out front of our building has also become a popular spot for photos for Ring Dance, Aggie Ring Day and other special events.
