#Larry U: New Web page streamlines the Lawrence social media experience

Think of it as one-stop social media shopping for all things Lawrence University.

PrintIn conjunction with the start of the 2015-16 academic year, Lawrence has launched an aggregator page on its website that will house content related to the college collected from virtually all social media platforms.

Instead of searching Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube Tumblr and other channels to see what is happening, being said and posted about Lawrence, the aggregator page will consolidate all content that contains the hashtag #LarryU in a single location as a way to streamline the social media experience.

“#LarryU is an exciting new way to experience Lawrence University,” said Kasey Corrado, the college’s social media specialist. “There are so many stories, photos, videos and conversations being shared about Lawrence on social media channels. I have the privilege of seeing a lot of this content, but I cannot share all of it via our university-wide channels.Print

“But now, #LarryU allows us to bring all of that content to an easily navigable single spot for others to see, too,” she added. “The hub could feature a photo of a prospective student visiting campus for the first time and right next to it could be a selfie of an alumnus celebrating his 25th Reunion. #LarryU allows Lawrentians to engage with campus from anywhere in the world.”
