The University of Texas at Tyler “Schools on Facebook” application is now available to prospective students, the university community and alumni, Charlie Hutchins, assistant vice president for enrollment management, marketing and customer service, announced.
The application (http://apps.facebook.com/uttyler/) allows prospective students, current students, faculty, staff and alumni to connect via Facebook.
UT Tyler launched the application to admitted students in April, current students this past summer and alumni this fall as a way to enhance admissions marketing, student engagement and alumni involvement.
“This provides UT Tyler with a private Facebook community to engage with prospective students, current students and alumni,” said Hutchins.
The UT Tyler Student Communication Team monitors communication, answers questions and populates content. Student organizations also benefit through the usage of calendars, reminder memos and event invitations within the application.
For more information, contact Hutchins, 903.566.7054 or CHutchins@uttyler.edu.
