Freshmen tour to be held in Minecraft? Why not?

Manila Bulletin reported that since it is not safe to go outside, the 409-year-old university is set to conduct an online tour of its Manila campus for its freshmen on August 28, 2020, on their own Minecraft server.

Dubbed as the "UST Minecraft Launch and Tour," the event will serve as the digital alternative of the "Thomasian Welcome Walk" rite of passage which has seen thousands of freshmen walk through and enter the institution through the historic Arch of the Centuries at the start of each academic year.

So, via Minecraft UST freshmen will be able to explore the 21.5-hectare campus and view its iconic structures reconstructed by around 80 UST students in great detail.

It is a two-hour virtual campus tour located in the UST Minecraft server on August 29 and 30 as well as September 5 and 6.

The week-long online program live-streamed through the UST Cloud Campus today August 24 until August 28, 2020.
