Social media

UD Social Media is now accepting applications from students interested in joining the Social Media Ambassador program for the spring semester.

Even though the message appears to come from University IT staff, the email is a phishing scam designed to get you to click a link to harvest your personal information. 

If you hover your computer’s mouse over the link that allegedly goes to UD’s Webmail service, you’ll see that the link would really take you to a suspect site.
