Using social media as a method of communication, I was able to share the Hargrave experience with family, friends, current and prospective Cadets, and alumni. Recently, I have posted on our Instagram Story "Cadet Life: An Instagram Journey" to involve our audience in a unique experience: for alumni, it was essentially a reminiscence; for family and friends, it was an eye-opener, introducing what their child or close friend experiences while they are here at Hargrave; for prospective Cadets, it gives them an idea for what is to come when they attend Hargrave; for current Cadets, it is a source of entertainment. To supplement the experience, I am gradually figuring out how to engage our audience in ways that appeal to everyone.
