Fort Lewis College was chosen to premiere a new Amazon Prime series that features videos of college campus tours. “The College Tour” is aimed at prospective students who can’t visit college campuses because of COVID-19 travel limits.

Viewers of the new Amazon Prime series “The College Tour” can see the inside story of what makes Fort Lewis College tick through interviews with students and a tour of campus.

The series premiered last week and featured FLC as the first stop on the video tour.

From student organizations and outdoor spaces accessible from campus to science and art classrooms and athletic fields, the segment gives high school students a view of life at FLC.

“Fort Lewis College is always seeking ways to connect with new prospective students and ‘The College Tour’ is such an innovative and unique approach to accomplish that,” said Lindsay Nyquist, director of FLC marketing and communications.

“The College Tour” will focus on a single college or university in each 30-minute episode. The series is hosted by Alex Boylan, a reality show contestant who has branched out to produce and host TV shows.

Boylan leads viewers on tours of campuses, showcasing interviews with current students and professors.

“The idea for ‘The College Tour’ TV series came to me from my 16-year-old niece. Because of the pandemic and finances, she wasn’t able to travel to tour colleges,” said Boylan. “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. We are really excited to be kicking off the series with Fort Lewis College.”
