Hosted by Emmy-nominated storyteller Alex Boylan, "The College Tour" is a series that highlights universities and colleges across the nation in 30- or 60-minute episodes. These episodes showcase what college life is like at that university and tell some of the unique student stories at each location.

  • Customizing Your WNE Academic Experience
  • First Generation Students
  • Inspiring Student Research
  • Meaningful Mentorship
  • Campus Life, Residential Life, and School Spirit

  • Study Abroad and Learning Outside the Classroom
  • Athletics
  • Social Justice
  • LGBTQIA+ on Campus
  • Student Support Services

Filming for the series will take place in July 2022 and debut in the late fall or early winter. Students who are interested in appearing on camera and sharing their WNE experience can learn more and apply to be featured. The deadline for submissions is June 9, 2022.
