Featuring ten UC Riverside students sharing their stories, The College Tour is a streaming series focused on colleges and universities across the United States. For its 70th episode, the production crew visited UCR to capture what makes our campus so special.
We know it may not always be feasible to visit a campus in-person, so hopefully these ten segments can give you a look into the life of current students and show you all the ways that UCR can support you during your time here!
You can see the full episode above or you can see the individual segments below!
