American university accepting new students using Snapchat
Wow, this is pretty forward-facing. The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is apparently sending prospective students a Snapchat when they get accepted into the college.
Apparently, if you applied for the university for admission in autumn 2017 and provided your Snapchat details, you’ll receive the above celebratory message in your Snapchat inbox. Pretty cute!
Local publication WSPA reported that alongside the traditional snail mail acceptance packets, the tech-savvy admissions team of UW-Green Bay are also sending class of 2020 acceptance Snaps.
“They would definitely get a snap before they’d get their mail packet,” commented Katelyn Santy, part of UW-Green Bay’s admission team.
“Students get the snaps pretty immediately because it’s a place where they are they spend a lot of time.”
Students are replying the university with their own excited selfies:
