Neato! UCCS now a Google Maps campus tour

  • Ta-da!

While it may lack the romance of wandering your future college campus for the first time, a campus tour on Google Maps is decidedly cheaper than plane tickets.

Google Maps now has virtual tours through dozens of campuses, including our very own University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. At first, I had a little trouble accessing the tour from Google's celebratory blog post. But Google spokesperson Gabby Parada took mercy on my poor, technology-challenged self and explained that it's actually quite simple.

Her instructions:

* Go to maps with street view (click "Try Google Maps with Street View")
* Search for University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
* Click and drag the pegman over to the pinpoint on the map (when you hover over the area you should see an image preview), then drop the pegman

Pretty cool!
