Connecticut College was ready for its close-up when Google brought its iconic Street View technology to campus on July 2. Now, viewers from around the world can experience the beauty of the College and its campus online using Google Maps Street View.

With just a Web connection, online visitors can explore Connecticut College’s 750-acre New London arboretum campus, with views of the Long Island Sound and access to the Thames River. Also included on Street View are the campus’ Native Plant Collection and the Caroline Black Garden, once recognized as an international Garden for Peace.

Street View operator Alberto Elias walked the campus shooting images with a Google Trekker, a 50-pound backpack-mounted device built specially for Google Maps Street View. The large green orb extending from Elias’s backpack contained several small cameras capturing 360-degree images. See photos from his visit.
