After applications are submitted, the CWU Public Affairs Social Media Coordinator will check applications for eligibility. Students who meet the criteria and are deemed fit to become a CWU Social Media Ambassador will be notified via email. In their acceptance email, students will be given a date range to select from to “takeover” the CWU Instagram. Students will then select a date that best fits their schedule and receive a temporary password for the university’s Instagram account the morning of their selected date. Students will then, throughout the day, post on the “Instagram Story” until the temporary password expires.
