Administrators say... "Thank you for introducing my admissions staff and me to the IPIX Virtual Campus Tour. The IPIX technology will give our prospective students the advantage of seeing key elements of our campus in an intriguing, realistic way through the 360 degree photos. We will have a distinct advantage over other universities who just have the traditional "still photo" campus tour on-line or in disk format.” • Marshall C. Rose, Director of Admissions University of Tennessee
