UTSMW 2015, The Power of Social Media


The Power Behind UTSMW 2015

The College of Communication and Information and the School of Advertising and Public Relations proudly hosted the 4th annual UT Social Media Week March 30th- April 2nd, 2015.

Social Media Week started as an opportunity to have established professionals come to UT and speak to students about how social media is used in the workplace. It has since evolved into a week where students can interact with knowledgeable experts in the field of their major such as: Communications, Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, and Journalism.
