Social Media Changes

October 15th, 2015

We are pleased to announce some big changes to our social media efforts.

Visual Communications now has a official Facebook page. Like us to get official updates from the program as well as photos and design work from current students. Going forward this will be the official page for announcements, news, and program updates. Like us today — we promise to not flood your Timeline with link bait.

The previous Facebook Group will continue on as before, and faculty and staff will still contribute and moderate the discussions there. However, official posts will now only come from the new page.

Visual Communications has also joined Instagram at @chemeketavc. Follow us for a more visual look at what is happening in the program.
