2013 Year in Review [Infographic]

As we launch into 2014, we decided take a look back at Chico State’s social media hits in 2013. The common thread across platforms is that all of our audiences love stories of student/faculty achievement, and have a strong connection to our beautiful campus and its quirks and traditions. So, we’ll do our best to bring you more of that kind of content in 2014!

Thank you for following us and keeping the Chico State social media community vibrant!

Without further ado…


Chico State 2013 Social Media Year in Review

Fall Cover Photo Contest: Fall-ing in love with Chico

coverphoto13contestWhat:
Help us choose CSU, Chico’s Facebook cover photo! Share your photos, and then help select from our favorites to be the next California State University, Chico Facebook page cover photo.

Guidelines:
Photos should show off the best of Chico State and the Chico experience. Take photos of our beautiful campus in all its fall glory or your student club hard at work—or make a creative collage of campus scenes. All photos should represent your own work, be in good taste, and comply with the Chico State Social Media Comment Policy.

Photos need to be large enough to work for a Facebook cover photo (851p x 315p, file sizes of 1 to 2MB work well). Most current smartphone camera photos are OK. (Sorry, Instagramers—most Instagram images won’t have high enough resolution when cropped and enlarged to Facebook cover size.)

You may submit up to three photos.

How to Enter:
Share your photo(s) with us in one of three easy ways!

  1. Post it to our Facebook Timeline. Put “cover contest” or “photo contest” in the comment
  2. Tweet it to us by tagging @ChicoState and including #photocontest.
  3. Email your photo as an attachment to PAintern1@csuchico.edu. Include “cover contest” or “photo contest” in the subject line.

Selection Process:
Share your photos with us by Weds., Nov. 6, at 5 p.m. The Chico State social media team will select finalists to be featured in a photo album posted on our page Thurs., Nov. 7. The photographers’ names will accompany the photos, so brag to your friends and encourage them to “like” your entry if you’re featured. The photo within the album with the most “likes” by Thurs., Nov. 14, at 5 p.m. will become the next CSU, Chico Facebook cover photo!

Note: This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by, or associated with Facebook Inc. Any and all information provided with your submission is to California State University, Chico and not to Facebook.

Winter Break Plans? Zzzz…

  1. In the midst of fall final exams last month, we asked our Facebook and Twitter community what they were looking forward to the most during winter break. Aside from graduation and travel, it seems like most Wildcats are hoping to catch up on their sleep!

    Check out the responses below:
  2. Suzi Bailey
    Relaxing, spending time with family and friends, and cleaning my apartment
  3. Greg Bloom
    the arrival of the next solar maximum, an interaction between Earth and the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or Earth’s collision with a planet called “Nibiru”.
  4. gregoriardz
