Social Media Takeover

What does a day in your life look like, Wildcats? Tell your K-State Polytechnic story through social media!

If you are a current student, alumnus or faculty member, you can apply to "take over" the campus's Instagram or Snapchat account. With this access, you'll be able to show followers a behind-the-scenes look at your life – who you are, what your day includes, and why K-State is special to you.

Takeover ideas:

  • Take us on a tour of your classroom, lab or workplace
  • Share your experience at a campus gathering, club meeting, K-State sporting event or while traveling abroad
  • Give personal insight into the K-State family

Use photos, videos and Boomerangs to capture your adventure, and enhance those moments with text, emojis, filters, GIFs and more. Have fun and be you!

How it works
Participants have the choice of taking over K-State Polytechnic's Instagram Stories or Snapchat account. You can either post in the moment over a period of one day, or you can gather content for up to one week and post on one day within that week. Upload the material yourself or send in content to the communications and marketing office for posting.

Takeover Guidelines

When you take over K-State Polytechnic's Instagram or Snapchat account, your content is a reflection of the campus and the university as a whole. Please be mindful of your language, imagery and text – your message should be positive, fun, and appropriate.

Also remember you are telling a story – be sure to introduce yourself and explain what followers are about to see. Consider how the story will flow and be creative with the media you capture.
