Connecting on Social Media

Hello and welcome to DeBlogs! I'm Anna Hanson, and I am currently a senior in the Honor's Program double majoring in Communication Studies and Spanish. Yes, I know, that was a lot of words. When I first came to DePaul, like many incoming freshmen, I was not sure about what I wanted to study. However, I discovered what I am passionate about through my coursework and experiences at DePaul. I am now thrilled to be working as the Social Media Coordinator intern for DePaul's Office of Undergraduate Admission.

I came all the way from Boulder, Colorado to attend DePaul. I didn't know a single person at the university, let alone in the Midwestern United States. Like many new college students, I was nervous for college. (It's okay, you can admit it, starting college is nerve-wracking!) So, what did I do? 

Like any other teenage human with an internet connection, I went on Facebook. 

I joined my class page and began to talk with other future DePaul students. Today, I now monitor the DePaul class groups on Facebook. You can join the Official Class of 2019 group and begin connecting with your future classmates today. I'll see you there!

I am excited by the power of social media. Everyday, I help to run our @depauladmission and @transferdepaul​ Twitter accounts as well as our Tumblr account,  

You can start exploring DePaul before you even arrive on campus.
