By Lisa Metcalf, FAU News Desk I February 7, 2022
Learning about Florida Atlantic University from the comfort of your couch has never been easier thanks to Amazon. FAU will be one of 15 universities featured in season three of Amazon’s “The College Tour” series. The episode will make its debut on Amazon Prime and IMDB TV on Tuesday, Feb. 8.
“The College Tour” is a new TV series created by Emmy-nominated and multi-award-
winning producers and tells the story of colleges and universities across the country. From campus life, academics, housing, sports, activities and much more, FAU’s 30-minute episode features 10 students and alumni along with countless faculty and staff cameos, offering an inside look at what it’s truly like being a student at the most diverse university in Florida.
“Highlighting Florida Atlantic University on ‘The College Tour’ is an exciting way to bring our brilliant educational opportunities and incredible location to potential students everywhere,” said Maura Flaschner, executive director for undergraduate admissions. “Providing access to education is a key component of our mission, so offering this tour on so many platforms provides an in-depth look at the FAU experience for all potential Owls, near and far.”
Series’ host Alex Boylan saw a strong need for creating these ultimate virtual tours to better help high school students during the pandemic learn what colleges across America had to offer.
“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,” Boylan said. “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.”
FAU’s episode can also currently be found on FAU’s YouTube channel.
