Webinar: Social Media 101

90% of young adults ages 18-29 are active social media users. As social networks like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, and Snapchat become normalized facets of daily communication, universities must be more deliberate about using these channels to their fullest potential.

Learning Objectives:
-Understand the importance of communicating via social media to millennial/Gen Z students & their families
