Today we had a speaker, Jerry Ackerman, who spoke to our students about social media and the impact it can have on our personal and social life. As a school community there has been a significant amount of time and emphasis encouraging students to be smart about your digital footprint – the information that you are posting and sharing through various social media outlets. As a component of that, we have often mentioned that the internet and social media can impact your college admissions, scholarship offerings or even various job offerings. Below are a few articles that speak to this:
Do colleges look at prospective students’ social media?
This is a perfect time to pause and critically look at your digital footprint and consider what it is saying about you and the impression you are giving to future college admissions officers, scholarship committee members, and potential employers. Please make smart choices about what you post online.
Thanks Jerry for a great message for our young students.
