SOCIAL MEDIA & ONLINE ENGAGEMENOur students regularly test and hone their skills for social good. Utilizing social media, students create online micro campaigns, develop imagery, messages and leverage the power of production for a specified outcome.   These online initiatives have recruited thousands of participants while also raising aid and goods for vulnerable individuals/families in CT.
