Wesleyan Comes to “Street” View

OH MA GAWD IT'S WELLESSSLEYYYAANN!!!Do you have a severe case of wesdrawl? Suffer no longer!  Whether you’re sitting in your parents’ house in Manila or laying in bed in the Butts, you can now virtually walk around campus through the Street View function on Google Maps.

As the Official Google Blog itself put it, “Whether you’re a current student trying to familiarize yourself with campus, an applicant assessing your options or an alumnus feeling nostalgic, the Street View feature in Google Maps can be your tour guide without the backward walking.”  An LA Times blog post linked to by the Wesleyan Facebook observes that prospective students and their families can now “imagine strolling along the Charles River at Boston University or enjoying the sunshine at Wesleyan University’s Foss Hill, right on the computer.”
