Hampden-Sydney continues to venture into the new media world. This summer Drew Prehmus '08 was named Director of Mobile and Social Media. From that position he will organize and coordinate the College's social media accounts and continue to pursue new ways to engage constituents on social media along with Scott Harris, Assistant Sports Information Director, and Jared Christian '12, New Media Coordinator in the Dean of Students Office. With an established social media presence already in place [see college-sponsored Facebook accounts for Hampden-Sydney College, Hampden-Sydney Dean of Students, Hampden-Sydney Tigers (Athletics), and Hampden-Sydney Class of 2015, as well as numerous other Hampden-Sydney-related pages], the College will expand its emphasis to Twitter this academic year, with greater promotion of @HSCAthletics and expanded activity on @Hampden-Sydney starting in August. You can also check in to Hampden-Sydney athletic events on foursquare this year: H-SC Athletics - the first Division III athletic program with a foursquare brand page, or so Scott claims. We encourage you to follow and interact with us.
The Hampden-Sydney College Facebook page continues its You Can Go Anywhere With a Degree From Hampden-Sydney album. If you would like more information about obtaining a Hampden-Sydney banner to take with you on your adventures, or if you have any recommendations for Hampden-Sydney's social media presence, please contact Drew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, keep an eye out for the College's mobile website, which will launch in early August at m.hsc.edu, and for a revamped Hampden-Sydney athletics webpage coming this fall.
