Social Media Ambassadors
The University of Delaware's Social Media Ambassador (SMA) program is a unique and fun opportunity for students to gain professional social media experience before graduating.
SMAs capture the excitement of student life at the University and tell their stories using branded Twitter accounts as well as through Blue Hen Says, the University's social media account for students, by students.
