This past week has been loads of fun to say the least. Conversing with students across the country has been very enlightening. This tweet week has taught me a lot, from managing to fit a quote in 140 characters, to learning that there are 100 personalized tiger statues around the University of Memphis’ campus. Challenge three has been very challenging, but in the end I feel accomplished. The 10 tweets me and my teammate had to complete were:
School Spirit! Sophomore Marisa Kong loves our Pirates regardless of how bad they have been this season, she loves attending the home games.
favorite eating spot or watering hole: Sophomore Christina Witmer loves Stony’s burgers and I can’t deny my admiration for them either. Nothing beats the greasy, artery clogging delight that is a bomber burger.
Professor on the street: Dr. Nina Capone Singleton of the Department of Speech and Language Pathology holds a belief that many of us in today’s world do.
Student on Street: Like most students in this day and age, Sophomore Emily Conti gets all of her news online!
Academic excellence: Seton Hall is nationally recognized as one of the most “connected” colleges. This is in no small part due to the Mobile Computing program here at Seton Hall. All students are given a laptop jam packed with software all students need to succeed in college.
Scenic spot: Although we haven’t had a day like this yet this semester, Springtime at Seton Hall is great because students crowd the green and have a blast on warm days.
Little-known fact: Scrubs star Zach Braff is a graduate of Columbia High School in Maplewood, NJ and grew up in South Orange. Even “littler-known” is Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill graduated from Columbia High School as well and was in attendance at his Bar Mitzvah.
Fanatic fans: Adam Howard and I hold the same sentiments on the rest of this basketball season. Being 13-10 at this point in the season is an absolute disappointment for the Pirates. Luckily, the Pirates boast a top 10 recruiting class for next year’s basketball season.
Extracurricular extravaganza: Seton Hall is home to 22 different Greek Organizations.
Freestyle: What Better place to freestyle than Walsh Library. Seton Hall’s library is home to 740,251 different titles.
Our top five tweets from other students:
All in all, this experiment was a success. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with strangers from various colleges. I loved speaking to different people to get quotes. It is a great idea, and it definitely should be continued into the future.
