One thing we all know: college students are spending more time on social media than ever before. Whether it’s via a laptop or a mobile device, students avidly use Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
How important is social media’s role in the fight against high risk drinking on college campuses? How can we harness the potential that social media provides to enhance the conversation and engage students?
To investigate this question, The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility will be sponsoring The BACCHUS Network’s first fall webinar for 2012. "What the Tweet! Using Social Media to Increase Student Involvement in NCAAW and Other Health Education Campaigns" has been scheduled for next Wednesday, September 5th at 2:00 pm EDT.
Sam Nathews, Senior at the University of Alabama and State Media Relations Director for the award-winning LessThanUThink student-led campaign will share the practical perspective on how to effectively incorporate social media to reach out to college students.
Sam will be joined by David Arnold, Director of Alcohol Abuse and Impaired Driving Initiatives for The BACCHUS Network, who will highlight this year’s National Collegiate Alcohol Awareness Week (NCAAW) initiatives, including use of social media.
Even though this is a free webinar, space is limited. Register now! We are looking forward to it and hope you will join us in this discussion!
