Description

Filed in Education & Learning.

It is impossible for me (I'm Kayla, a HS Senior in Chicago, IL) to go to every college that I am interested in for a tour. Frustrated by this, I began thinking of ways to get an inside look on each school without visiting each and every campus. In my free time, I watch music videos, makeup and beauty videos, and DIY craft videos on YouTube.

So, I got my stepdad to build this website so that I could easily tour every college via YouTube while learning about them too. Kayla's Tour gives you a lot! You can search from thousands of colleges to pull up multiple videos of the colleges campus while getting all the criteria about the school at the same time. Nice :)

From watching the videos, I have gotten a better insight on schools I have never been to before. I even learned more about schools that I have visited!
