“The details are impressive.” Maryville launches with self-guided historical walking tour; virtual sustainability tour; videos; photos; and more
On March 1, Maryville College announced the launch of its new CampusBird-powered interactive campus mapping system. Located in Tennessee between the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Knoxville, Maryville College is a nationally ranked institution of higher learning focused on the liberal arts and professional preparation.
“For students who have never set foot on our campus, this map will answer some of their questions in the short-term but motivate them to schedule a real, in-person tour,” said Maryville College President, Dr. Tom Bogart. “We’re very excited to be able to offer this feature through our website.”
Maryville College’s CampusBird incorporates photos and video and includes a self-guided walking tour of the College’s historic campus, a sustainability tour, more than 30, 360-degree panoramas of buildings and locations, and detailed descriptions and photographs of residence halls and academic buildings.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with Maryville College,” said CampusBird CEO, Oliver Davis. “It’s gratifying that Maryville is already seeing the benefits of the CampusBird platform and looking ahead to many other potential applications designed to increase interest in the College.”
Maryville College plans for the map to help more than prospective students. President Bogart said that in addition to Admissions, the map will benefit other departments and offices that regularly invite visitors to campus.
“Potential clients of [Maryville] College’s Corporate Sales and Events Office will be able to view and assess rentable spaces for their conferences, meetings and reunions,” said Bogart. “Fans of visiting athletics teams now will find our fields and courts easily. Eventually, our alumni may benefit from a map layer that shows areas of activity during events like Homecoming and Kin Takahashi Week. There are lots of possibilities.”
