Hendry/Glades Florida Southwestern College

FORT MYERS — The Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW) Virtual Campus Tour was officially launched Aug. 1 for prospective students.

The simulated experience includes 360-degree media layered with interactive elements, putting visitors in control of their own journey around the college’s four locations in Fort Myers, Naples, Punta Gorda and LaBelle. Users can access the tour on desktop, mobile or with virtual reality headsets at

“Students want to see our campuses before they start classes, but are often unable to visit in-person. By providing a virtual tour option, students in our local area and around the globe can see firsthand what FSW offers,” said Amber McCown, FSW director of admissions. “The virtual tour is an exciting new opportunity to showcase the college using some of the latest technology available.”

While the majority of FSW students come from the five counties encompassing southwest Florida, the college is experiencing increased interest from students statewide and nationally. More applicants from states such as New York, Michigan, and Ohio — along with international students — are considering FSW to continue their education.

Traditional, in-person tours are still available throughout the year and by appointment at FSW is still accepting applications for admission to the fall 2018 semester. For more information about FSW and how to apply, visit
