A Pacific Coast College Campus Tour

This video college campus tour takes you to four-year colleges along the Pacific coast from Juneau to Monterey.

If you’re from the Pacific Coast of North America, you’ll probably find a good cultural fit at colleges here.

People from Pacific Coast cities have more in common with people living 2000 miles away in other coastal cities than they do with people living 200 miles inland . Accordingly, we present you a video college campus tour—from North to South—of the four-year colleges in coastal California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, and southern Alaska. We’ve included links to school websites and channels for you to further explore.
