• Do you want to have an impact and make a difference?
  • Do you want to use your voice on social media to positively influence others?
  • Do you want to use your social media platforms to open doors of opportunity for you?
  • Do you want to Be Worth Following online?

If you answered YES, then this is the Wildcat Summer Camp experience for you!
This summer, join Assistant Professor of Strategic Communication, Dr. Jen Bennett in a unique,
one-of-a-kind social media camp experience where you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to
be different and influence people in a crowded social world.

You’ve probably heard the well-known phrase by Benjamin Franklin, “It takes many good deeds
to build a good reputation, but only one bad one to lose it.” During your social media camp
experience, you’ll learn the ins and outs of building and cultivating an excellent social media
presence that positively impacts and influences the lives of others, while also opening doors of
opportunity for you!

Throughout the week you’ll learn:

  • What it really means to be an online influencer (and it’s not based on viral videos, numbers,
    or popularity)
  • How to confidentially step into your unique voice and thought leadership
  • How to not fall into the social media comparison trap
  • Why building a personal brand right now is a must

The outcome? You’ll have an online social media presence/personal brand that showcases who
God created you to be and one that will open doors of opportunity for you!
