This summer Belmont’s Social Media Administration Team (SMAT), in collaboration with intern coordinators across campus and the Office of Study Abroad, created an online tagboard to capture images of Belmont students and employees exploring sites around the world.

Using the hashtag #belmont2anywhere, individuals can post photos or videos via Instagram, Facebook, Vine and Twitter, and the images are automatically loaded onto a curated page: In the past week alone, more than 100 photos have been added from sites as far-ranging as South Africa, Poland, Hawaii, Haiti, Brazil, Czech Republic, Turkey, Greece, Israel and Washington, D.C.

Social Media & Digital Marketing Specialist Lougan Bishop, who chairs the SMAT, said, “For years Belmont’s tagline has been ‘From Here to Anywhere,’ and our students and alumni definitely live up to that challenge. With social media, we can really see the impact of that statement as our students share their amazing experiences through internships, mission trips and study abroad. It’s only May. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer has in store.”
