Student Affairs Multimedia
At Butler, we recognize the importance of using social networks
like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as tools for reaching out to
students and the campus community. Here are some highlights of what
student affairs has done in the last year or so!
Dr. Johnson's Twitter and Facebook accounts are linked so that
anything he tweets gets posted as an update on his Facebook wall.
This allows all of his Facebook friends to keep up on his messages
- even those without a Twitter account.
Here is an example of a holiday contest student affairs did
using @LevesterJohnson's Twitter account. L.J. tweeted a link to this
site and asked students to complete the missing rhymes of a
poem to be entered in a drawing for a Butler mug, a $15 gift card

Social media should always be about building relationships and
creating value for participants. Give them a way to interact with
you and a reason to care about what you're saying. This contest

The University has a number of officially recognized Twitter and
Facebook accounts which can be found on the recognized social networks page of
Butler's online newsroom.

Lesczynski was key in keeping students healthy during flu
The "Critical Conversations" video was used on the orientation
website and in Butler's Parent Newsletter in the weeks leading up

cover before students move in to their new home away from home.

Students are at the center of every video, but none have been
more involved in the process on-screen and behind the scenes than
senior business marketing major Kodi Colip. As an intern in the
Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, Kodi has helped
take our YouTube efforts to the next level. The videos above
showcase some key events at Butler and feature the unique talents
of our own "Kodi on Campus."
