#UMWSocial Circle




You’re invited.

UMWSocial Circle is the university’s social media think tank – a mix of students, faculty and staff who are both interested in collaborating on social projects and run the multitude of social accounts at UMW.

We meet during the academic year to share social news, tips and trends and discuss upcoming campaigns – all towards enhancing UMW’s social media impact.

Contact Erika Page Spivey at espivey@umw.edu to get on the email list!
