UC Merced to feature on The College Tour show

Amazon Prime’s 11th season of The College Tour is dedicating one episode to UC Merced and will feature 10 students.

UC Merced will be highlighted on an Amazon Prime show that showcases universities around the world. 

The university announced that it will be featured on The College Tour. 


The big picture: The College Tour is a half-hour show that focuses on a single school for the episode, highlighting campus life, academics, athletics and other activities. 

  • Amazon Prime sent the film crew to campus last October, and 10 students were chosen for the program after a casting call went out earlier in the semester. 
  • The College Tour is in its 10th season and has profiled over 100 schools since it started in 2020. 
  • The series’ 11th season will premiere in May, which will include the UC Merced episode. 
  • However, UC Merced is hosting a premiere watch party on Feb. 8, followed by a questions and answer session with the students who appeared on the episode. 
  • The event will begin at 6 p.m. in the Dr. Vikram and Priya Lakireddy Ballroom and will be free to attend.
