Michigan State Alumni Email Accounts At Risk

13 Jun

Michigan State University alumni who have not registered for classes for more than two years were notified their ‘@msu.edu’ email accounts will be deactivated. The alumni accounts set to be deactivated have until the end of August to transfer their emails.

Originally, the notification stated these accounts and storage files would expire on June 26. After receiving large amounts of negative feedback, a second email was sent the same day, apologizing for the short notice and extending the deactivation date to August 31.

The university is currently looking into alternative options. The deactivation is set for August 31 until further notice.

Do you agree with this decision?

The Lansing community is packed full of experienced individuals who are very versed in the areas of marketing, advertising, and public relations. One of those individuals is Scott Westerman, President of the Michigan State University Alumni Association (MSUAA).

We sat down with Scott, and he gave us the in and outs of social media. Enjoy!

Getting into Social Media for the Individual.

“Press Rewind”

Scott’s biggest advice for individuals thinking about getting into social media was to, “Press the rewind button”. Scott talks about how you need to go back and look at what you were posting since the start of your accounts. Take down what you don’t want associated with your personal brand. Scott says nothing is secret on the internet anymore. Everything is available directly or indirectly.

“Your Personal Brand”

Scott then goes on to talk about “Your Personal Brand”. Scott suggests that everything you do online expresses your personal brand. You never stop expressing with whatever you’re doing. Scott says to make sure your watching your language and don’t get carried away with what you’re doing online. He says that all of us are our own company, selling a product (ourselves) so we need to make sure we’re thinking strategically.

“Whether we like it or not, we all have a personal brand we express everyday. We’re constantly defining it, and refining it.”
