"With Ms. Wilson's regular posts, I was constantly reminded of assignments to do, or programs to attend that I would have otherwise forgotten about."

"Following my advisor on Twitter was very helpful to find out events. I don't live in the FYC village, so it was helpful to see the events happening on Twitter which I otherwise might not have known about."

"Tomorrow I have a job interview because I heard about applying to be a Parent Ally through my adviser's Facebook post."

"The social media mainly helped me to remember when my assignments were due."

"I was aware of a lot more going on around campus and it also helped me stay on track with the forums."

"I saw most of the events on social networking sites before I herd about them through email or in class."
