INDIANAPOLIS— When Season 10 of Amazon’s The College Tour premieres the University of Indianapolis will become the first Indianapolis-area school to be featured. The College Tour is a web-streaming television series which allows colleges and universities to market their unique offerings to prospective students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to visit campus.
The series is hosted by Alex Boylan, former winner of CBS’s Amazing Race. Alex and his Emmy-Award winning production team have also worked on Survivor, The World’s Toughest Race, and The Chef’s Table, among others. Each episode of The College Tour features a single institution and contains student-driven segments that will give viewers an inside look at what it’s truly like to be a student at the featured college or university. Host Alex Boylan says the show “provides a well-rounded perspective that provides viewers with a feel for the culture and vibe of a campus that they can’t get just by reading about it online.”
From July 24 to July 28, The College Tour will be on UIndy’s campus filming 10 University of Indianapolis students who will showcase their college experience on a variety of topics from campus life, housing, academics, athletics, what it’s like to go to college in Indianapolis, and more.
Media are invited to attend any of the taping dates for a behind the scenes look at the filming of the episode and a discussion with UIndy representatives and students. Host Alex Boylan will be available for media on Thursday, July 27, from 7 a.m. to noon.
The University of Indianapolis episode will be available on The College Tour website in October 2023, and will premiere on Amazon Prime in February 2024.
