DOYLESTOWN >> On Friday, Aug. 27 Delaware Valley University held a red-carpet premiere and student viewing party for a new episode of “The College Tour,” a national television series featuring colleges and universities around the world. DelVal is highlighted in a full episode of the new show.

The event included a red carpet, searchlights, food trucks, popcorn, music, and the students who appear in the show. Students gathered around a big screen on the quad to watch the episode. Alex Boylan, the host of the series, gave an introduction and shared his career journey with students.

“Time can’t be stopped, time can’t be bought, and time spent being unhappy or not following your passion and your purpose is time you will never get back,” Boylan told DelVal students at the event. “You all attend an amazing university that focuses on experiences, use those experiences. You have a faculty that celebrates and supports you. You have an amazing place here to flourish. Whatever you do, where ever you end up in life, whether it’s halfway around the globe or right down the street, just do it with everything you’ve got, and set the world on fire. That will help you live an extraordinary life.”

The episode of “The College Tour” featuring DelVal includes interviews with 10 students about their DelVal experiences. The series is designed to allow viewers to virtually tour campuses from their homes. The featured students posed on the red carpet and enjoyed the episode with Boylan and the DelVal community.

“What a fun night of being celebrated and supported,” said Christine Lambert ’22, a conservation and wildlife management major, from Macungie, Pennsylvania, who is featured in the episode. “Thank you, to everyone who has watched my segment on ‘The College Tour’ TV Show.”

The DelVal episode of “The College Tour” can be streamed on Amazon Prime and other streaming services. The full episode is also available at delval.edu/TheCollegeTour.

DOYLESTOWN >> Emmy-nominated and award-winning TV producers will be visiting Delaware Valley University, in Bucks County, to talk with students about what makes DelVal special.

The University will be featured in an episode of “The College Tour,” which will air on Amazon Prime. Filming will take place April 19 through April 23 on campus and at Doylestown’s Fonthill.

Hosted by Alex Boylan, from the reality show “The Amazing Race,” the series tells the story of colleges and universities around the world. Each episode focuses on a single college or university and covers campus life, academics, housing, sports, activities, and much more. The show is designed to give prospective students an inside look at what it’s truly like being a student at the featured college or university.-

“We’re looking forward to showing off our campus and giving our students a chance to share why they chose DelVal,” said Kathy Payne, vice president for enrollment management. “Our students will be sharing some of the amazing real-world experiences they have been able to have because of DelVal. Our experiential education program, Experience360, gets students out of the classroom and working in their fields before graduation. We’ll be hearing about those experiences as well as what day-to-day life is like for a DelVal student.”

“DelVal is celebrating 125 years of being a leader in experiential learning this year,” said Kathy Howell, associate vice president for marketing and communications. “There’s no better time to show off what DelVal has to offer to a national audience. This is an opportunity to share the DelVal story with people who might not be able to visit campus.”
