Big Rapids, Mich. - Ferris State University Athletics will begin
a #BulldogSummer social media blitz on Monday (July 9) as a way in
which to interact with fans leading into the 2012-13 athletics
FSU's two-month "Bulldog Social Summer" will run from July 9 to the first official day of the new athletics campaign on Aug. 30 when the Bulldog Football team ventures to Joliet, Ill., to take on the University of Saint Francis.
While fans are eagerly waiting for the Bulldogs to return to action, the #BulldogSummer initiative will allow them to talk Bulldog Athletics online with other fans, win prizes and have fun while keeping up with the Bulldogs on various social media platforms.
Aptly named #BulldogSummer, the plan will feature different interactive components for each day (Monday-Sunday) via Twitter, Facebook and FerrisStateBulldogs.com, as well as other special features.
Additionally, an all-new FerrisStateBulldogs.com will be part of the #BulldogSummer and be launched in the near future.
The daily themes for the #BulldogSummer include:
Mic'd Up Monday - Watch an interview with some of the most interesting people in Bulldog Athletics including student-athletes, coaches and more.
Trivia Tuesday - @ferrisathletics Twitter followers and official Facebook friends will be asked to correctly answer a Bulldog Trivia Question. Everyone with a correct answer will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to any Bulldog football game this year. Better study up on your Bulldog History!
Where Are You Wednesday - Upload photos of yourself or family members to the Ferris Athletics Facebook page or tweet them online. Whether you're from other parts of the country, in your office at work or resting on the couch, share your Bulldog pride with others for a chance to win!
Throwback Thursday - We're scouring the archives for fun photos, old game programs and maybe even an article from the past. See them on Twitter and Facebook. You'll be surprised at how awesome some of our uniforms and athletes looked back in the day!
