Social Media Team

The UL Lafayette Social Media Team (SMT) is a group of students who use their creativity to pitch ideas, craft content and complete projects to be shared on the University's official social media accounts, including Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Spotify, Discord, and Facebook, as well as the website.

Team members have a diverse set of talents—photographers, designers, filmmakers, sticker & GIF creators, writers, influencers, and trendsetters (or, at least, trend identifiers). Working with UL Lafayette's social media strategist and the Office of Communications and Marketing, SMT members use their skills to bring the diverse perspectives and voices of UL Lafayette students to the University's social media platforms while gaining invaluable social media and marketing experience working in a professional social media context.

Requirements: Attendance at monthly meetings, coverage of events on the @ULLafayette Instagram and Snapchat accounts, and regular participation in the UL SMT group chat. School pride and the desire to inform and entertain students at UL Lafayette through social media are a must! If you are interested in joining the award-winning UL Lafayette SMT for the 2022-2023 academic year, please fill out the application here. We are accepting applications through Aug. 26, 2022.
