UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Penn State Live is expanding its connection to University Park students through social media. University Relations' latest Penn State Twitter account, @PennState411, is a student-run account created to share helpful tips and organizations' events along with the latest student-related news.
Recognizing that many Penn State students get news updates through Twitter, @pennstate411 aims to be a way to keep students up-to-date on daily University information they want and need to know. While the new Twitter account's main audience is University Park students, @pennstate411 intends to share content with -- and among -- Penn State students in central Pennsylvania and beyond.
The account hopes to share useful information, from notices about important academic dates to Penn State sports highlights, Student Newswire stories, upcoming career opportunities, on-campus speakers and a wide range of activities going on in Penn State students’ lives.
Students who have something important that their classmates should know about can tweet @PennState411. Administrators are unable to offer endorsements or share sales promotions.
