Choosing a college abroad?  Google can take you on a walking tour of schools around the world. You can explore 36 new university campuses across the US and Canada with Street View in Google Maps.

First stop: Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Architecture buffs will love Georgetown’s Healy Hall, a national historic landmark.

If a tropical climate is more your speed, maybe the University of Miami is the right place for you. Strolling UM’s scenic pathways winding through palm trees and clear blue water, you almost need to put on your shades. Talk about extra credit!

Finally, stop by the University of Regina in Canada. Founded in 1911, the school is known for its emphasis on experiential learning. Although its Saskatchewan location can get pretty cold, students can take advantage of the beautiful green when the sun is shining.  These universities are the latest additions to the hundreds of college campuses all over the world. Search for a particular university on Google Maps and click on Pegman to enter the Street View imagery.
