Social Media Guru, Luke Wycoff
This is a 5-Star Event to help students learn how to use social media to your advantage! We are all told to stay clean or play “defensively” when it comes to our social media accounts. We should flip the role and play “offensively” because we all know future employers will be looking at them.
