“A broadening of our social media outreach will be greatly beneficial as we continue to strengthen connections with alumni and friends,” says Director of Development Communications Cassie Swanson. “We took the time to discover places that made sense to reach alumni and friends, share news, encourage conversation, and enhance overall college awareness, and so we are excited to add these tools to our current mix.”

Swanson says that you can look forward to several monthly promotions to kick off the new media; including ‘Tweet/Pin your Love of Beloit’ in February. News of the alumni Twitter and Pinterest accounts will be shared via the Alumni Facebook page (, LinkedIn group (Beloit Alumni), and the alumni website today, as well as to the broader community via e-newsletter on Jan. 14.
