We are counting down the hours until Homecoming Weekend featuring Arts & Culture this Friday and Saturday. Though our online registration has closed, all alumni and friends are welcome to walk on to join the fun at any time. Once you’re back on Locust Walk or cheering at Franklin Field, we also invite you to share your stories and photos via our social networking channels. Here are just a few ways you can use online networking to make the weekend even more enjoyable for all involved.
Twitter: You can tune into our live tweets throughout the weekend by following us on Twitter, and we also ask that you share your status updates on your own Twitter account by using the special hash tag: #PennHW.
Facebook: Go ahead let your friends now that you’ve returned to Penn for Homecoming through Facebook posts—you might even inspire them to hop in a cab to join you at the Taste of Penn. Once the weekend is over, we’ll be searching for posts and tweets related to Homecoming and using them to create a Storify memory of the weekend that you can share.
Mobile app: Need to find the location of an event? Want to check out the Look Who’s Coming list? Interested in creating your own personal schedule for the weekend? Go to the i-Tunes app store to download the free mobile app by searching for “Penn Homecoming Weekend.” You can also view the mobile version of the website on any smart phone by using the web browser and directing it to: http://www.alumni.upenn.edu/mobilehomecoming.
Instagram: If you have an Instagram account, join Penn Alumni’s Instagram stream and share your photos with us. We want to see your best pictures of you and your friends as you enjoy the many activities during the weekend, and especially during the football game as you cheer the Quakers on to a sure win against the Brown Bears.
Finally, if you’re still teetering between whether to come back to campus this weekend, maybe I can sway you with one more push via social networking. Enjoy this short video snippet of the arts-related programming that you’re sure to love. See you soon!
