The Pasadena City College Office of Public Relations recently launched a number of social networking tools to improve communications with the student body and greater community. From special events to safety updates, those logged onto Twitter, Facebook, and "Lancer Life" (the official campus blog) will be the first to receive the inside scoop on PCC happenings.
"The way that our students and the San Gabriel Valley community receive information is changing every day," said Juan Gutierrez, PCC Director of Public Relations. "The PCC social networking sites will add to the avenues that the institution has to communicate important information on events, programs, and student service opportunities." Twitter (@pcclancer) will be primarily used to report campus safety news and updates from Board of Trustees meetings. Facebook fans (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pasadena-CA/Pasadena-City-College/170946228956) will be privy to exclusive photo collections and campus event invites including movie screenings and art installations. "Lancer Life" (http://pasadenacitycollege.wordpress.com/) will offer insider information regarding financial aid, campus life, and student affairs.
In the near future, a YouTube channel will be launched. For more information, contact PCC Public Relations at (626) 585-7315.
