Today's high school students don't just rely on websites and viewbooks. They turn to social media to help them get a complete picture of life at a particular college.
At some schools, the reverse happens, too. Some colleges and universities (not Bucknell) actually look at an applicant's social media to give them a fuller picture of the prospective student.
In this episode of College Admissions Insider, Becca Haupt, the Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Bucknell University, delivers a deep dive into the world of social media.
Becca and the hosts discuss:
- What prospective students and their families should be looking for when examining a school's social channels
- How to go beyond the school's official channels to see what people are "unofficially" saying about a school
- What high school students should do if they're applying to a school that reviews applicants' accounts
- How to keep a healthy outlook about college applications when looking at other people's posts
