An interactive multimedia campus tour offers a new way to explore the Elon campus. By navigating the campus map, visitors to the Web site can learn about the history, as well as the current use of each building. Taking the tour is easy. Just click on the section of the campus you wish to explore, then click on each building to learn all about the facility. The site contains an overview of every building, detailing the year the building opened, its namesake and departments and facilities located in the buildings. The site also has narrated slide shows and panoramic photos of many buildings on campus as well as a video tour of Moseley Center with a student tour guide. There are also links to more information about the facilities on the Elon Web site such as links to residence life with details on housing options on campus.

The multimedia tour is a great resource for prospective students to easily get acquainted with Elon and its history before coming to visit the campus in person. Members of the Elon University community can also enjoy the multimedia features and history on the site.

The Visit Elon site also offers two podcast audio downloads for guided campus tours. Visitors to campus can choose to take the walking tour, driving tour or both. Visitors can download the podcasts and then explore Elon at their own pace, guided by Elon alumni David Hibbard (director of law school communications) and Sallie Hutton (director of alumni relations), as they share the history of Elon and detail the campus and its facilities.

The walking tour will take visitors to the main buildings of campus including Moseley Center, the Koury Business Center, McMichael Science Center, the Academic Village, Alamance building, McEwen Communications building, the Koury Center, the Center for the Arts and other buildings along the way. The driving tour will take visitors to complexes farther away from the center of campus including Danieley Center, South Campus, Arts West and the North Athletics Complex.

Access the new Web resources from any page on the Elon Web site via the dropdown menu tab labeled “Visit.” The new features of the Web site were created by University Relations staff members and student workers over the past nine months, with primary work by Mollie Lambert and Tyler Anderson, summer student staff members, and Dan Anderson, director of university relations, and David Morton, Web site manager.
