With admission deadlines on the horizon, students applying to college this year face new realities in the process. So, now we're taking a closer look at social networking's role in college admissions.
While everyone may not use them, most everyone has heard of Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, and other sites like these. That includes universities like Texas Tech.
On the school's main web page, you'll find links to their social networking sites. Ethan Logan, Director of Undergraduate Admissions says these sites are a part of the college student community, and the school needs to provide information to them in a way they want.
"I think that they're very welcoming and very interested in communicating with people, and to use that forum is something they're very comfortable with, and they will allow us to enter into that forum as long as we're not trying to convince them or pursued them to do something," Logan said.
