Trending: For the week of August 15 – 21
Welcome to ‘Trending’, where each week we share a few things to watch for on social media.
As soon as next week, students will be loading up backpacks for Orientation, suiting up in Bison gear and making last-minute course adjustments. Are you ready for it all? Our favourite #umanitoba Instagram shot this week is a great reminder of what’s to come in our hallowed halls this fall.
Here’s what else we’re talking about on social media this week:
- It’s the final week of competition, as the 2016 Summer Olympics come to a close. We’ll be following Bison alums Desiree Scott (soccer) and TJ Sanders (volleyball), plus former Asper student Tyler Mislawchuk (triathalon) as they compete this week. Tag #rio2016 to cheer along with us!
- Are you moving into rez this fall? The UofM Residence Life Instagram account is counting down the days…follow along at #UMWelcomeHome.
- From ice cream to pizza to bacon – there are more great family-friendly events this month at the Farm and Food Discovery Centre. Follow them on Twitter for details.
- University life can be a culture unto itself. For new students, the term ‘academic integrity’ might not be familiar. Learn about it at #umintegrity.
