Welcome to the June edition of our eNewsletter. This month, we are excited to share with you a number of new tools and features that will help us communicate more effectively with students, alumni and the BYU community.
We live in an exciting time with a number of new technologies that enable quick, quality communication across the globe. Whether it be over Facebook, Twitter or streaming video, it is now easier than ever before to share information over vast distances and feel connected to something bigger.
We’ve already had great success with these “New Media” tools in connecting and interacting with our friends and alumni who have moved forward with their lives and careers in different parts of the world. Your reading of this eNewsletter is just one great example of the power and reach these technologies possess in connecting people with the college.
However, we also realize that a monthly email is not always sufficient to share all of the great news and events happening here in Provo, nor for you to interact with the college and with each other the way many of you wish. Thus, in order to better connect with you and to help you keep in touch with others, we will be strengthening our online presence to provide even more ways to interact with the college and other alumni and friends.
First, you can now become a fan of CPMS on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Many of our friends and alumni use these social networks on a regular basis, which will allow us to more effectively keep you posted about college events and happenings.
Also, we are currently in the process of producing original video content to promote
and educate people about our departments and the great work being performed by the faculty and students here. You can view these videos and more on our official Vimeo channel, CPMStv.
We have already completed the pilot webisode of our new online video series, “Hands On,” which will highlight the research activities of several current students. You can view the first episode by clicking the thumbnail image below, and stay tuned to CPMStv, Facebook, and Twitter for information about more segments to come in the very near future!
These new tools will allow us to better communicate with our students, alumni and friends on the many platforms of our changing world. I encourage you to log on, check us out, and interact with the college online as we move toward a brighter, more integrated future.
As always, we look forward to keeping in touch in new and exciting ways.
