#RiseWithUs Social Kickoff Set To Launch Bulldogs Into 2017-18 Athletics Season!

Rise With Us

Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University Athletics will continue an award-winning initiative while gearing up for the 2017-18 campaign as the Bulldogs officially launch the #RiseWithUs Social Kickoff on Tuesday (Aug. 8).  

The interactive month-long social media blitz, which comes on the heels of past highly-successful summer social media initiatives, will help fans tick down the days to the official start of another athletics season the first week of September.

As part of the effort, FSU will kickoff another campaign with a new theme as the recently-unveiled #RiseWithUs wording will be carried over to a variety of projects and promotional items throughout the year along with being a primary hashtag and wordmark on Twitter and various other social media platforms. 

Fans are encouraged to use the #RiseWithUs tag on all tweets related to Bulldog Athletics.

While fans are eagerly waiting for the Bulldogs to return to action, the #RiseWithUs Social Kickoff will allow them to talk Bulldog Athletics online with other fans, reminisce and have fun while keeping up with the Bulldogs socially.

Aptly named the #RiseWithUs Social Kickoff, the plan will feature different interactive components for each day (Monday-Sunday) via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and FerrisStateBulldogs.com, as well as other special features as the days count down to the fall season. 

In addition to various daily themes noted below, all Bulldog alumni are also asked to use a past photo of themselves as a FSU student-athlete for their profile pic during the month of August.

The daily themes for the #FerrisStrong Social Countdown include:

Mic'd Up Monday - Catch an interview with some of the faces in Bulldog Athletics, alumni, student-athletes or others as FSU preps for another exciting year.

Trivia Tuesday - @ferrisathletics Twitter followers and official Facebook friends will be asked to correctly answer a Bulldog Trivia Question. Better study up on your Bulldog History!
