VALDOSTA – Valdosta State University Communications students recently partnered with the City of Valdosta for a social media campaign.


Every year, the City of Valdosta partners with Valdosta State University’s Communication Department for students to have an opportunity to create a social media campaign for the City. Dr. Nelson’s social media management class is tasked with creating a social media campaign. The students are divided into groups and present their campaigns to the Public Information Office. The best group wins! At the recent City Council meeting, the winning group was announced, and Mayor Matheson along with City Manager Mark Barber presented the winning team with a City of Valdosta coin.
