The Shorty Interview with Rowan University

Twitter or Facebook?

Twitter. Without a doubt. We've found that the majority of our students (and prospective students) are using Twitter way more than Facebook.

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

#UsingTooManyHashtags #WhenTheyShouldJustBeSentences

Why should we vote for you?

Because we go above and beyond to connect with students, faculty, and the greater Rowan community.

What's your best tweet?

"#GoodLuck to our #Profs taking finals this week! May the odds be ever in your favor. ;)" --Pretty proud of ourselves for that one.

Biography

Since its founding in 1923, Rowan University has evolved from a teacher preparation college to a bustling regional university that's ranked among the best public universities in the North by U.S. News and World Report. Today, Rowan's more than 12,000 students choose from 85 bachelor degree programs, scores of graduate programs and a doctoral degree. The University is one of just 56 institutions in the country with accredited programs in business, education, engineering and medicine.

How do you or your organization use social media? What makes your use unique?

Aside from the typical updates of campus news & events to its social media followers. Rowan University is on the brink of something new. Rowan University is the first of its kind to use a crowdsourcing campaign to create content for its own homepage. #RowanPROUD is the first in a series of crowdsourcing campaigns to bring Rowan students, staff, alumni, and community stories to the world via the Rowan University homepage and social media. These stories will be seen by millions of visitors annually! Rowan has so many pride points that it's virtually impossible to contain them on one web page. You can check out the #RowanPROUD campaign and the many success stories from students, staff & alumni, here: http://www.rowan.edu/proud/
