MSUM featured pre-commencement shows for the first time this spring

Posted on June 01, 2015

The commencement ceremonies that took place May 15 in Nemzek Fieldhouse took a new twist on celebrating students’ collegiate accomplishments. This spring’s event featured pre-commencement shows with live and taped video, which aired on WDAYZ Xtra and the MSUM website.

“The idea of the pre-game shows came as we were talking about how we could extend our story beyond the commencement ceremony and beyond tweeting,” MSUM’s Associate Vice President for Academic Planning Denise Gorsline said. “Tweeting is still a key social media strategy, but we felt we could do more.” Read the rest of this entry →

MSUM commencement ceremonies take over Twitter

Posted on May 19, 2014

On Friday, Dragon pride swelled over social media as the two commencement ceremonies took place. Graduating seniors and audience members were encouraged to tweet their support, Dragon pride and excitement by using #MSUM2014 on Twitter.

“MSUM is committed to providing a campus that mirrors the world in which our students will live and work,” Provost Anne Blackhurst said. “That world is increasingly mobile and connected.”

Family members and friends who couldn’t make it to the event sent congratulatory tweets as they watched online; graduates reflected on the most memorable moments of their college careers; and audience members stated their pride in 140 characters or less.

By Friday afternoon, MSUM’s designated hashtag garnered over 2,500 tweets, resulting in a national trend on Twitter. #MSUM2014 made over 1.5 million impressions, but the biggest success was the excited engagement within the walls of Nemzek Fieldhouse.

“Commencement is, above all, a celebration of our students. It’s important to preserve the pomp and circumstance and traditions that denote the gravity of the occasion,” Blackhurst said. “But it’s also important to provide an occasion that is focused on the student experience. Our students had a blast.”
