2013 UNH Commencement Goes Social

The department of New & Emerging Media at The University of New Hampshire wanted to create a website where anyone interested in this year’s graduation activities could visit and see all things social media related. Along with our web designer, we created a mash-up that includes a controllable webcam looking out onto Memorial field, where the 2013 commencement ceremonies will take place.

 

The website also includes a live stream of the 143rd commencement, a Twitter and Instagram feed featuring all #UNH13 tagged posts, a Foursquare list of each scheduled event on campus during the week of graduation, and three Facebook cover photos for anyone to download and use.

 

If you can’t make it to commencement, or your just interested in checking it out… enjoy all the glorious moments through our 2013 UNH Commencement portal by visiting: http://bit.ly/UNH13

 

This is the first in a series of UNH social media dashboard projects we plan on rolling out for each major event during the academic year ahead.
