NEW YORK, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BluTours, LLC, a student-run startup that provides college-prospects personalized, 1-on-1 campus "experiences," now offers their service at over 100 colleges and universities nationwide. Their mission and message to students: to help you find your fit.
"As an athlete, I was lucky enough to have both a unique and meaningful experience visiting colleges," says 19-year-old company Founder and CEO, Ibrahim Abukwaik, "But the large majority of students don't get that special, personalized treatment."
The BluTours experience targets some of the major issues and challenges that occur with traditional campus tours: large groups, repetitive "one-size-fits-all" messaging, and scheduling issues that come with limited availability. BluTours' solutions have gained significant praise from guidance counselors: "The vision is brilliant. I've been on many tours where the parents are doing all the listening and asking all the questions while the kids are behind the crowd on their phones. Students need to get involved."
The process is simple: students visit the BluTours website, create an account, select any of the available campuses, select their interests, and give a brief (3-5 sentence) description about themselves. Upon submission, BluTours uses this information to connect you with best matches for hosts, destinations, and topics - all to make your visit on campus as personal, insightful, and enjoyable as possible.
Don't miss the ride! You can try BluTours for free until the end of the summer.
