The Challenge

The Chaplin School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at Florida International University's Biscayne Bay Campus sought to enhance their recruitment and admissions initiatives by providing an immersive virtual experience for prospective students. They needed a way to showcase their stunning campus, state-of-the-art facilities, and unique learning environments in a way that would captivate and engage potential applicants.

The Solution

AUG Imaging collaborated closely with the Chaplin School to create an extensive interactive virtual tour that would transport viewers to the heart of their campus. Through aerial 360-degree views, detailed interior and exterior shots, we captured every aspect of the school's facilities, including fully operational kitchen labs, the Wine Spectator Restaurant Management Lab, and the Southern Wine and Spirits Beverage Management Center.

The Results

Since its launch, the Chaplin School virtual tour has achieved remarkable success, with 89,000 interactions to date. Prospective students can not only explore the campus but also complete application forms directly within the tour, making it a powerful recruitment tool. According to Olivia Catasús, Chaplin School, "The virtual tour has been an invaluable asset in our recruitment efforts."

Additional Services

In addition to the virtual tour, AUG Imaging provided a range of complementary services to further enhance the Chaplin School's marketing efforts. Our team conducted timelapse photography to capture the dynamic campus environment, and we also produced stunning drone and aerial video footage, providing prospective students with a unique bird's-eye view of the school's picturesque location on Biscayne Bay.

Continuous Improvement

As the Chaplin School continues to evolve and upgrade their facilities, AUG Imaging has worked closely with them to update the virtual tour, ensuring it remains current and engaging. Most recently, we incorporated renovations to their J.W. Weiss Wine Laboratory, including the Chip Cassidy Library, and the addition of a stunning, newly branded walkway pavilion. This seamless integration of updates demonstrates the enduring value of virtual tours, continuously attracting new interactions and applications.

At AUG Imaging, we pride ourselves on being a long-term partner, committed to ensuring that our clients' virtual tours remain powerful marketing tools that accurately represent their institutions.
