BYU gets snap-happy

BYU is dipping its toes in the Snapchat realm.

We are excited to announce three major efforts to make Snapchat a bigger part of the BYU experience for students. It?s now easier to stay informed and have fun.

Our Campus Story

The team at Snapchat added a campus story anyone can contribute to. You will be able to view content submitted by any other Snapchat users on campus, giving a fun look at what life at BYU like is like for other students. We?re not too sure how long it?ll be around, so take advantage while you can!

While anyone is free to submit content, remember that everyone will be able to see what you share if it gets added to Our Campus Story.

To view the story:

1 - Scroll left to see stories

2 - Find the story that says BYU

3 - Tap and enjoy

@byucalendar

While BYU doesn?t have an institutional Snapchat account, we've created @byucalendar to keep students informed about the cool stuff going on around campus. Free food, date ideas and more - all in a story you can view whenever. Got a question about an event? Send us a snap and we?ll try to track down the answer.

Add us by username or through the Snapcode in the sidebar.

BYU Geofilters

As great as the Provo geofilters are, it?s high time for some BYU geofilters. We want to allow the entire campus community an opportunity to have a say in what filters we?ll include on campus, so we?re inviting anyone with a design background to submit their own designs. Send entries to socialmedia@byu.edu by September 10. Design specs can be found here, but the following guidelines should also be remembered:

1 - No logos or slogans

2 - Be creative and have fun!

If you?re interested and have questions, feel free to contact us at that email address. We will choose the best designs and submit them to Snapchat soon, later in September.

Happy snapping, Cougars!
