What’s new?

We are seeing more of our followers taking great pics around campus and the city and tagging us, so we’re re-sharing more content.

And now that you can follow hashtags, we encourage our followers to follow #memorialuniversity and #munpix to see photos and videos that we’ve shared from other Memorial students.

What makes a good post?

The unpredictable weather of Newfoundland and Labrador always seem to capture the attention of our audience. Our followers definitely respond to a good weather shot.

As always, our goal is still capturing the essence of the Memorial experience in a cool, visual manner.
