The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 20 • Tuesday, July 1, 2014  


Campus Champion

Two years working as an Orientation Assistant (OA) showed senior Sarah Kelly that social media was an unexplored path to reaching new students and their parents. The trailblazing communication studies and Spanish dual major — working as administrative coordinator for the summer — now guides OA’s and manages Orientation’s public Twitter account, @cortlandorient. She tweets pictures, answers questions and offers fun facts geared to first-year and transfer students. Sarah will continue to find ways to connect social media to her work with new students in the fall, both as a TA for COR 101 and to promote study abroad programs.
