Social media directory builds Elon connections

A new directory will serve as a hub to allow students, parents, faculty and staff, alumni and the community stay better connected to the university.

Screen shot: dozens of Elon departments and initiatives are active on almost a dozen social media platforms.

Elon has launched a social media directory on its official website to make it easier to stay connected to the university, its departments and its professional schools on almost a dozen different social networking platforms.

More than 65 Elon initiatives, organizations and departments are featured in the directory, which can be found here.

On any given day, users of social media can interact with President Leo M. Lambert, ask the Office of Admissions questions about the application process, or strengthen connections with alumni via the Elon Alumni Association. University departments and schools often tweet, post and blog daily happenings and important information, meeting students on the devices and platforms they frequently use every day.

Don't forget to tag posts across each social network with the hashtag #Elon to foster more conversation and interaction.

For more information about social media at Elon University, contact Philip Jones, social media manager in the Office of University Communications, at (336) 278-7403 or pjones16@elon.edu.
