Virtual Campus Tours

The Memphis Public Libraries wants to ensure that our local high school seniors and juniors have an outlet to view college campuses online. These virtual tours have been uploaded to YouTube and offer you a chance to explore a campus from home. We hope to keep the conversation and interest going for the upcoming semesters as teens have to find a different way to explore colleges that interest them.
