Social Media Guidelines

Hey there, Panthers! Welcome to our social media guidelines page. Here you can learn how to collaborate with us to share posts and the rules of #PantherPrideLivesHere 

Social Media Policy and Guidelines 

Residents have the opportunity to develop friendships, discover talents, and explore the world through many of these popular online channels. Online channels allow thoughtful, purposeful engagement. While the Office of Residence Life encourages the use of social media, all users should remember that social media tools are a powerful form of communication that can have a significant impact on organizations, individuals, and their reputations. Lines between personal and professional content, and between public and private content, are often blurred. Whether participating on behalf of the University, a University-related group, or personally, all users must follow the same behavioral standards online as they would in face-to-face or one-on-one interactions. Remember that the internet is not anonymous, nor does it forget.
