(Cleveland, OH) - Kent State University and The University of Akron are the only two Northeast Ohio Colleges that will be expanding to a new Facebook Campus platform, a college only space designed to help students connect with fellow classmates. Facebook Campus visuals can be found here.
With this feature, students can create campus-specific profiles, different from their Facebook profile, where they can share their graduation year, major, where they are from, and more to help them find people with common interests at their school, create study groups, and plan events.
Other schools in Ohio include Ohio State-which rolled out Facebook Campus in early 2021, Toledo, OU, and University of Cincinnati.
These two schools are the only two in NEO that are featuring Campus out of 140 nationwide.
Facebook Campus will offer:
- A College-Only Space for Students. Facebook’s .edu verified space allows students to participate in their unique college-specific community, reminiscent of the original version of the platform in 2004, where users were required to have an .edu email to create an account.
- A Campus Directory. Facebook found that students, and especially incoming freshmen, are looking for ways to more easily learn who’s in their class and connect with people in their individual courses, majors and student clubs. Facebook Campus’s campus directory makes that easier than ever before.
Kent and Akron students can sign up for the Campus tool starting today.
