FAU Featured in Amazon's 'The College Tour'

Ten Owls share FAU’s story with the world in an episode of “The College Tour,” a series that showcases colleges and universities across the country. FAU is one of 15 universities featured in the program’s third season, which is available now on Amazon Prime Video.

“The College Tour” focuses on each institution’s academics, student life and location. FAU’s 30-minute episode is driven by student-led segments offering an inside look at what it’s truly like to be a student at the most diverse public university in Florida.

“Highlighting Florida Atlantic University on ‘The College Tour’ is an exciting way to bring our brilliant educational opportunities and incredible location to potential students everywhere,” said Maura Flaschner, executive director of undergraduate admissions. “Providing access to education is a key component of our mission, so offering this tour on so many platforms provides an in-depth look at the FAU experience for all potential Owls, both near and far.”

The students and alumni featured in the episode reflect many elements of the FAU experience. Segments include a deep dive into undergraduate research opportunities, student life on and off campus, FAU’s coastal location and its many ocean-related programs, student success highlighting first-generation students and alumni, and academics and leadership development to prepare students for a modern workforce.

In addition to Amazon Prime Video, FAU’s episode is available for streaming on IMDb TV and The College Tour TV channel on the following platforms: Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire, Android TV, and most major smart TVs. It also is available on FAU’s YouTube channel.
