CBA Continues #LOVEUAKRON Campaign in a Social Media Contest

11/11/2016

You might know that this past summer, The University of Akron and the James L. Knight Foundation launched a social media campaign to engage our community with the school. The campaign invited students, faculty, alumni, and members of the greater Akron area to write reasons why they love UA and share them on social media with the hashtag #LoveUAkron.

What you might not know is that this project was initiated by College of Business Administration (CBA) student Stephanie Weber, a junior marketing major at UA. "My faith in our University has never wavered. This University has many great assets and holds a special place in the hearts of so many. I feel it is time to again remind each other and everyone else of this," according to Weber. Participants hand-wrote notes stating what they loved about The University of Akron, then took a picture with their phone, posted it on social media and included #LoveUAkron.

In support of Stephanie’s passion and love for our school and to continue the spirit of gratitude, the College of Business Administration is holding its own #LoveUAkron social media contest during the month of November. To participate, create a message for why you love The University of Akron and tweet it, post on Facebook, or share on Instagram. You MUST include the hashtag #LoveUAkron and include your program’s business area: #UACBAAccountancy, #UACBAEconomics, #UACBAFinance, #UACBAManagement, or #UACBAMarketing.

The business discipline generating the most positive sentiment will be declared the winner by the CBA Dean Krovi.
