Major Crush Monday Wrap Up: Peek Inside Our Cell Culture Suite

Did you know that our cell culture suite is one of the absolute very best around? That it is arguably better than some of the most prestigious colleges in the region?

#MajorCrushMonday is one of the ways the communications department helps to spread the word about our outstanding academic programs here at DeSales. A few times throughout the year, we highlight different majors and academic programs with a mix of videos, stories, and images on our institutional social media channels.

The posts have been very popular; each one has reached thousands of people. And, what’s more, the positive comments from students, parents and alumni confirm the high quality of our programs and epitomize that special Salesian spirit that is delightfully, distinctly DeSales.

Yesterday we featured a video and story combo on Facebook about the cell culture suite. In less than 15 hours, the post had reached almost 4,000 people, 1,000+ video views, 100+ positive reactions, and was shared by nearly 20 people. A very special thank you to Dr. Joshua Slee for working with us on this project.

If you’re interested in working with us to have your major or program featured in a #MajorCrushMonday, please contact kristin.laudenslager@desales.edu.

Tonight – Freshman Focus Group: What do YOU think about desales.edu?

Freshman, you can earn a Character U point and $5 in Paw Bucks*, simply for sharing your opinion about our website.

Please join us tonight (11/20) at 7 pm in Gambet 245.

Our desales.edu website is an important tool for prospective students to learn more about DeSales. We’re in the planning stages of a complete site redesign — the new site will launch at the end of next summer. We’d love to hear your opinions about how you used the website in your college search and decision process.
