Students should never be told to avoid social media for college admissions.
In fact, the opposite is true. For years, counselors have been encouraging their college bound students to clean up, hide, or even delete their social media accounts altogether. This dated advice ignores the obvious. When done right, social media can help students get into the college of their choice.
Students need to be taught the permanence, discoverability, and vast reach of social media, while also learning how to use social media proactively and productively.
In the competitive world of college admissions and scholarship opportunities, students need a way to stand out from the crowded pool of qualified applicants. Social media provides the perfect platform for students to tell their story, showcase their accomplishments, and convey their character.
