Why join the MyCSU advisory committee? Students on the committee get to share their ideas and suggestions on how to make the MyCSU website a better resource for the CSU community. Applications are due April 16.
MyCSU 2.0, a website dedicated to showcasing the diversity of the CSU campus, will begin taking applications for a new MyCSU Advisory Committee this week. The committee, a total of 10 CSU students, will advise MyCSU staff on creative considerations and promotions for the site.
Applications can be accessed via the MyCSU website and are due by Friday, April 16. Completed applications should be submitted to the Office of the President, located in room 102 of the Administration Building. Any interested students are encouraged to apply.
Students chosen to serve on the MyCSU Advisory Committee will be involved in strategic discussions that address blog and video topics, ideas for advancement using social media and other outlets, and suggestions for site improvements.
The topics addressed will make membership on the committee particularly valuable to journalism, communication, and marketing majors seeking experience in the fields of digital promotion and social media. Committee meetings will take place every two to three weeks.
The MyCSU project, which is operated through the Office of the President, was launched in 2006 to illustrate campus diversity and market to potential new students. Since then, the site has grown to include more than 120 videos featuring students involved in all facets of campus life, including research, internships, athletics, and Greek organizations. Blogs and student-submitted photos are also included on MyCSU.
The site’s new platform, called MyCSU 2.0, launched on the first day of the 2010 spring semester. The new site connects MyCSU with social media such as YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. It is also connected with Flickr, the online photo-sharing community, and students can use this tool to post their own photos of life at CSU.
