The image below is from Facebook’s insights to the Georgia College Facebook page’s posts for the month. We had significant activity spikes during our two summer Orientation sessions. Our most popular post was our video featuring current students’ advice for new students was highly popular. The video received more than 6,500 views and was shared 55 times.

We used #gcsu20 to encourage our incoming students to share their memories from Orientation and beyond. This hashtag will be used throughout their four-year journey at GC (from Week of Welcome to Senior Picnic), with the intention that by the time they walk across the stage at Commencement, we will have access to a digital memory of their time at GC.


On Instagram, we had two Student Ambassadors conduct an Instagram Takeover of our account for each orientation session.
