What Will You Do?

After reading Being Cheryl’s post about Capital University’s new campaign called “What Will You Do”, I HAD to check it out.  This new campaign lets students post pictures, notes, and videos of things that they plan to do in the future.  After visiting the Web site to learn more, I realized that a campaign like this one really helps show the ambitions and diversity of students at Capital University.  The video posted at the top of the “What Will You Do” page is only a couple of minutes long and shows quick snippets of some students’ plans, goals, and dreams for the future.  Some “What Will You Do’s” are as simple studying for a test or attending a meeting while others are more complex like graduating from Capital University at the top of the class.  The site also has a place where a viewer can click to see the Capital University homepage to learn more about the institution.  I think this campaign is really interesting because it makes Capital University stand out.  The posts, pictures, and videos of the students help give the university a more personal touch.

I think that Clemson University should try something like this.  By asking a diverse group of students what they plan to do in the future, I think it will help give the Clemson  University site a more personal touch.  When looking on the Clemson homepage, there are headlines from recent news and a calendar of upcoming university events.  However, I think if a link to a site similar to Capital University’s was shown, it would help high school seniors get a better feel for the kind of students that attend Clemson.  It may even help convince some to become Tigers!

  1. I also read this blog for Capital University and I agree that this would be an excellent idea for Clemson. I think it would be so interesting to see what fellow Tigers are aspiring to and how inspirational it could be for others to make their own goals. Also, potential students and their parents could see this as a fundamental part of Clemson education…attending and completing college with goals in mind and sights set high!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Leslie. I think Clemson students would enjoy the site if they were able to recognize a few of the people who posted.
