Amazon Prime’s ‘The College Tour’ to showcase St. Vincent College

By Herald – Standard I November 16, 2023

“The College Tour,” an Amazon Prime original series that showcases select colleges and universities throughout the nation, will feature St. Vincent College in its 10th season.

The show spent the entire first week of classes filming on the campus of the Westmoreland County college.

The unscripted series showcases individual colleges and universities through the perspectives of current students. This show is hosted by Alex Boylan, an Emmy-nominated producer who won CBS’s second season of “The Amazing Race.” Boylan’s inspiration for the series was personal, driven by witnessing his nieces’ challenges in navigating the college search process, constrained by financial considerations. This was the catalyst behind his decision that higher education needed its own television series. “The College Tour” has now surpassed over 100 episodes and enables viewers to virtually tour campuses they might otherwise not have gotten the opportunity to explore.

In the upcoming season, St. Vincent College in Latrobe takes center stage in a 30-minute episode, with 10 students and alumni sharing their individual stories as Bearcats. It will be the last episode of the season, and is expected to debut this winter.
