Virtual reality tours give rural students a glimpse of college life
from PBS Newshour
The first time that Nyah visited the University of North Carolina at Greensboro for a campus tour, there wasn't much of a chance to see what takes place inside the classrooms. "We just walked by buildings and the guide talked about what goes on inside," Nyah recalls of the campus tour this past spring. But during a second "tour" of UNC Greensboro this fall, Nyah, now a senior, got to see students in a science lab, even though she never left her high school in Roxboro, North Carolina, a small city of about 8,400 more than an hour from the Greensboro campus.
