ETSU featured in episode of nationally  broadcast TV series ‘The College Tour’

Elizabethton.Com | April 26, 2021

New series tells the story of colleges and universities across the country.

JOHNSON CITY — COVID-19 safety restrictions have led to new opportunities to expand access for college visits beyond traditional in-person tours. A new nationally broadcast TV series created by Emmy-nominated and multi-award-winning producers, The College Tour, has released an episode featuring East Tennessee State University as told through the stories of eight students and two alumni who share their unique experiences and offer an inside look at life on campus and within the Johnson City community.

 The first season of The College Tour is streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Roku. Host Alex Boylan, who was part of the winning team on the second season of the reality TV show The Amazing Race, guides viewers on an exploration of what life is truly like on college campuses. The idea for the show came from Boylan’s 16-year-old niece.

 “Because of the pandemic and finances, she wasn’t able to travel to tour colleges, so using our skills as executive producers we created a series inspired by her and millions of other young people who are interested in attending college,” he said. “This series has been so fun to produce and we are excited to bring ETSU into homes across the world.”

 The College Tour is a cutting-edge approach to reaching prospective students through the voices and experiences of actual students and graduates.

 “No matter how far away someone is from Johnson City, Tennessee, they can learn about the exciting academic programs and experiences awaiting them here,” said Heather Levesque, director for the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at ETSU. “The episode also highlights affordability, which we know is the first question for families as students navigate their future after high school.”

 Morristown native KeiAndra Harper, who is featured in The College Tour episode, tells viewers how she faced paying for college on her own and discovered scholarship opportunities that will allow her to graduate from ETSU debt-free. Sarah Hamilton explains how she is reaching her dreams of becoming a physician and Spanish interpreter right in her hometown of Johnson City.

 ETSU appeals to many students living outside the Appalachian Highlands, as shown in stories featuring Jaquae ‘Quay’ Holmes of Marietta, Ga., and Carly Brewington of Coral Springs, Fla. Holmes found his ETSU family not only on the football field, but also through shared connections with other student athletes, such as Brewington, a member of the ETSU Women’s Triathlon team. Brewington has received support from mentors and students as she completes her teaching residency program at ETSU’s University School.

 ETSU alumna Amythyst Kiah came to ETSU to study Bluegrass, Old-Time and Country Music under musician, writer and program founder Jack Tottle. In the episode, she talks about starting her music career at ETSU and receiving a Grammy nomination for a song she wrote titled “Black Myself,” which she also performs.

 Like Kiah, Caitlin Maupin left her hometown of Chattanooga to attend ETSU. She immediately connected with the local art community and was selected to paint a mural representing Johnson City that she shares in The College Tour episode.  Another Chattanooga native, Jaylen Malik Grimes, discovered his passion for student engagement through ETSU’s Preview and Orientation Leader Organization (POLO) and is working toward a master’s degree in Education, Leadership and Policy Analysis. He gives viewers some important advice about how to be successful at ETSU.

 “One of the best ways to learn about a college and if it is a good fit is to learn through another student’s experience,” Levesque said. “The College Tour is a collection of first-person stories that almost anyone can relate to and provides the connections students seek when searching for the campus they can call home. We hope people see themselves as part of the ETSU family after watching, and schedule a visit to see campus in person.”

 Anthony Salas of Kingsport also appears in The College Tour. He transferred to ETSU from a community college and shares with viewers many of the hands-on learning opportunities available in the Radio, TV and Film Program, including BucTV News, the East Tennessean, creating short films and traveling with student groups. Joseph Mora talks about a different opportunity to create what we see and interact with on screens. During his Digital Media studies at ETSU, the Nashville native has created and successfully launched his own 2-D game, Chiaroscuro. 

 Alumna Kayla Carter shares her passion for the outdoors and growing the community through her role as the outdoor development manager for Northeast Tennessee Regional Economic Partnership.

“Here, the people are as sweet as the tea and traffic is hardly an issue,” she says in The College Tour episode. “I have a very rewarding job because I get to give back to the beautiful southern Appalachian landscape and community I have lived in my whole life.”

 ETSU’s episode of The College Tour is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video and Roku. The full episode and individual student and alumni segments are also available to view at etsu.edu/episode.

ASU partners with Amazon Prime Video, offering a virtual tour of college

Brittni Thomason, Azfamily.com | April 5, 2021

The past year has been tough on students of all ages.

As many went back and forth from online to in-person learning, the pandemic also presented a real challenge for high schoolers looking forward to their next step. COVID-19 precautions made it difficult for people trying to pick a college.

But now, there are new ways to check out universities. For those who don’t want to travel or can’t take campus tours, Amazon Prime Video shows you schools right from your couch through The College Tour series.

It’s basically a virtual tour of campuses, and you hear from students, talking about their experiences at college. Arizona State University has its own episode. You’ll also find episodes featuring schools in Colorado, Florida and Tennessee.

Jesus Vega was one of the ASU students chosen to be part of the show. “ASU is so big, and there are so many opportunities, and that’s what drove me here,” said Vega. Now the college sophomore hopes to sell his school to prospective students. “It just really feels like a big community,” said Vega.

Grad student Lily Baye-Wallace was also featured in the show. “It really makes college accessible and information about college accessible to groups where it might not normally,” she said.

“For students who are out of state, or maybe don’t have a chance to travel and tour colleges because of COVID, they can get to see what it’s like to go to a certain college, and they don’t have to go there in person to be able to do that,” said Emma Broyles, an ASU sophomore.

The students hope the show helps people who are considering ASU for school. “Wherever you choose, make sure it makes you happy,” said Vega.

You can watch the show on Amazon Prime Video or ASU’s website.

Insidenova.com | March 31, 2021

Breanna Fulton of Vienna, who is studying sustainability and urban planning at Arizona State University, recently narrated a video segment promoting her school on “The College Tour.”

Vienna native Breanna Fulton, an Arizona State University (ASU) sophomore majoring in sustainability and urban planning, recently helped promote the university in an hour-long episode of a new show that now is streaming on Amazon Prime Video and Roku.

Fulton’s video was one of 18 produced at ASU for “The College Tour,” which is hosted by Alex Boylan, the 2002 co-winner of “The Amazing Race.” Fulton narrated a 3-minute-long video titled “How is ASU leading the world into a sustainable future?”

A 2019 George C. Marshall High School graduate, Fulton said she decided to attend ASU after her mother told her she needed to tour its campus while visiting the Phoenix area.

“The campus was gorgeous,” she said. “Everyone seemed so nice.”

‘The College Tour’ series comes to Amazon Prime Video

EdScoop.Com | March 3, 2021

Prospective students — or just curious TV viewers — can now take tours of universities like Arizona State University and the Florida Institute of Technology by watching a new series on Amazon Prime Video.

“The College Tour” takes viewers on a journey that “tells the story of colleges and universities around the world,” according to the show’s website, with plans to include at least nine universities. The first three episodes, which highlight Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado; Florida Tech in Melbourne, Florida, and Arizona State in Tempe, are available to stream now.

Created and hosted by Alex Boylan, a past winner of the reality TV show “The Amazing Race,” says the inspiration for the series came when his niece started her college search. The series has taken on new relevance as the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many universities shift away from in-person tours.

“My niece is now looking at colleges, and with her family on a budget, she couldn’t tour as many colleges as she hoped,” Boylan said in an ASU press release. “I thought, what an amazing opportunity to showcase different universities to place-bound students around the country through a professionally produced television show.”

The ASU episode, which features 18 students talking about their experiences at the university, focuses on “student choices and personalized learning experiences,” according to the university.

“In a challenging year for many families, we knew that we needed to put in action bold ideas to help prospective students learn about the amazing university experience waiting for them at ASU,” Matt Lopez, the university’s executive director of admission services, said in a press release. “Giving our current students the chance to tell their stories on platforms as far-reaching as Amazon Prime and Roku was an exciting way to meet families where most of us are right now — at home.”’

The ASU episode is also available on YouTube.

“So using our skills as executive producers we created a series inspired by her and millions of other young people who are interested in attending college.”

Sagastume takes viewers to Melbourne Beach for a walk along the beach and some inline skating.

Florida Tech’s athletics programs, flight training and diverse cultural community are also featured.

“It was so much fun producing Florida Tech’s episode,” Boylan said. “What a special school in an amazing location on the Space Coast. The students are rock stars and it was an absolute pleasure to work with the school’s staff to bring their story to life.”

Marco Carvalho, Florida Tech’s executive vice president and provost, agreed with Boylan.

“The show highlights many great features of Florida Tech as a university, but what we really love is how it puts our amazing students front-and-center,” he said.

“We’re so proud of their passion, determination and enthusiasm—and the Florida Tech episode of The College Tour gives us the opportunity to share their stories with the world.”
