How Tweet It Is
While official Marist social media accounts provide
followers with College news and updates, just as much
time is devoted to answering questions about what’s
happening on campus, sharing photos, and joining
in the excitement of high school seniors who take to
Twitter to announce their acceptance to Marist.
