Yes, being on CSU’s social media team is as fun as it looks.
But it’s also serious business being part of a group that has been recognized globally for its creative, engaging and impactful work.
The four members of “Team Social,” as they are called in CSU’s Division of External Relations, typically roam campus as a gaggle and are often accompanied by one of the CAM mascots, cuddly animals, or superstar alumni.
They are the ones who brought you the April Fool’s spoof of Jimmy Fallon wearing a CSU shirt, the live Facebook chat with astronaut alum Kjell Lindgren, the irresistible “Puppies on the Oval” and the Snapchat takeover by alumnus Chase McNary of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”
Oh, and they won a Webby Award in 2015 for a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session with CSU Animal Sciences Professor Temple Grandin, which was the most popular science AMA ever. (The New York Times has called the Webbys the leading international recognition of excellence on the Internet, attracting more than 13,000 entries from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.)
