FloridaShines, a website for online educational services, helps Mustangs explore over a dozen campuses by providing interactive virtual tours.

Senior Abigail McManus is anticipating her graduation in the spring.

McManus said, “It’s been difficult to see what college will actually be like without being able to physically tour different campuses, but online tours have been very helpful.”

Mustangs can also use FloridaShines to discover programs, learn about alternative options for college, and plan for life after graduation.
