10,000.
 
What a number, right? Minnesota’s lakes, Natalie Merchant’s Maniacs, goal steps per day. 10,000 is often considered a benchmark in achievement or awe of size.
 
And we’ve hit that benchmark: we have 10,000 followers across our social media platforms. Since I joined VTS last year (my anniversary is next Tuesday!), I have worked with Curtis Prather, director of communications, students, and representatives from campus departments on messaging and sharing photos and videos in a timely manner. From Convocation to Commencement and General Convention, I hope you have felt connected to VTS through our social media presence, no matter how long it has been since you last visited.
 
But we still have room to learn and grow. In the coming year, we’ll be live streaming more lectures and programs, sharing more personal stories from students, faculty, and staff, and exploring the Stories feature on Facebook and Instagram. Is there something you’d like to see? Please email me at epanox-leach@vts.edu and let’s chat.
 
If you haven’t already, take a look at what we’re doing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and even YouTube. I’m looking forward to meeting the entering class of 2018 next week and sharing their experiences with you.
 
I'm proud of my work sharing our community on Holy Hill online.
