Applying to colleges can be overwhelming, but now Google is stepping up to make it a little easier to find the perfect school for you. Google Maps just added 36 more college to Street View, so you can take a quick campus tour without ever leaving your room.

Google doesn’t offer a full list of the schools now covered by Street View, but checking for a specific college is as easy as searching in Google Maps and seeing what comes up. New additions come from the both the U.S. and Canada, and include Georgetown University, the University of Miami, the University of Regina, and the hilly but beautiful Lehigh University (of which our own Todd Haselton is a proud alum).

Of course, you’ll probably still want to visit campus in person before making any final decisions, but it can’t hurt to take a quick tour online first just to get your bearings. Even if you already graduated years ago it might be fun to take a stroll through campus just to see what’s changed.
