Using social media can be a great way to connect with your future classmates, friends and potential roommates. You can also stay up to date on what’s happening on your college campus. Don’t wait to get started.
Facebook groups for your school will let you hear about group meet ups with future classmates in your area. You may find potential roommates and friends with common interests. You can also talk about the best classes to sign up for and post questions you may have about the college. Check the school’s Facebook page to stay up to date with approaching deadlines for required forms, deposits and special programs.
LinkedIn University Pages offer the latest news directly from the schools. These LinkedIn pages are also where you can read what alumni are doing, where they’re living, what fields they’ve gone into and the jobs they’ve had since their graduation. This is your future network.
Twitter accounts belonging to your future professors may be of interest. You can follow what they’re writing about, researching and learn about the latest news in their field. Campus organizations, including fraternities, sororities and clubs use Twitter to stay connected with the school community.
Look on Instagram for your college’s page and see what students are doing on campus now.
These are exciting times! You’ll be joining a new college community and it’s never to early to become an active member.
