Jersey City, N.J. – March 3, 2023 – Saint Peter’s University is featured on season seven of The College Tour, an innovative TV series from Emmy-nominated producers Alex Boylan, Lisa Hennessy and Burton Roberts. Hosted by Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, The College Tour is a series created to empower high school students to virtually travel across America for an inside look at colleges and universities.
“Everyone in the Saint Peter’s community knows what a special place the University is, but being featured on The College Tour has provided us with an excellent opportunity to share our story with the world,” said Eugene J. Cornacchia, Ph.D., president of Saint Peter’s University. “I am incredibly proud of our students who participated in the production process as they did a phenomenal job in sharing their unique experiences at Saint Peter’s.”
Each episode of The College Tour focuses on a single college or university. Student driven segments give viewers an inside look at what it is like to be a student at the featured college or university with a focus on campus life, academics, housing, sports, activities and more.
“The entire country got to know Saint Peter’s during the amazing run of the men’s basketball team in March Madness last year,” said Boylan. “We couldn’t wait to come to the University’s campus to produce this episode in order to share all of the other unique aspects that Saint Peter’s has to offer prospective students.”
