The Benefits of Connecting With Your College via Social Media

October 26, 2015

You’ve done it! You’ve been accepted into college, toured the campus, purchased your books, memorized your schedule, but there’s one thing you still haven’t done… connected with your college on social media!

Why is this important, or even necessary? Research shows that colleges are using social media platforms increasingly to communicate with students. Even college presidents are tweeting and instagramming these days!


We want to reach you where you’re most reachable, but what’s in it for you? Connecting with Chatfield via social media has many benefits, like contests and prizes, as well as useful content, deadlines and upcoming events. According to Study Break College Media, a percentage of students will “like” a Facebook fan page for the following reasons:

Contests: 47%
Giveaways: 56%
Suggested by a friend: 25%
Personal Connection: 47%
Good Content: 55%
Just Being a True Fan of the Brand: 68%

If you follow Chatfield, you will see all of these things! How easy is it to share or like something to win a gift card or another awesome prize? Or if you see something you want to share with someone else, it can be done in one click. You are part of our brand at Chatfield, and we want others to get the most accurate view of us and our students, but we need your help! Be proud of your college, share us with your family and friends!
