New campus blog has inside scoop on life at Simmons
Campus Life has joined the blogosphere by turning their old newsletter into a new, interactive blog that includes photos, videos, and feature stories written specifically for Simmons students. And for those who want to be one!
The new blog, Simmons Life, launched in January and Director of Residence Life Jessica Faulk says the blog format allows Campus Life to reach a whole new audience, and to share information quickly, as it happens.
"There are so many more possibilities for interesting content and engagement in the blog format," says Jessica Faulk, editor of Simmons Life. "We can create slideshows, post videos, and add links to all of our posts. Students also can share specific posts with their friends through social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. We're also excited that the blog format allows us to reach a larger audience. Potential new students, Simmons staff, and current student parents can more easily access the blog and see the amazing vibrancy on campus."
Simmons Life currently has 10 Campus Life staff members as contributing bloggers. It plans to add several student bloggers, including two commuter students, one resident advisor, one graduate student, and one first-year student.
