From 11 until noon today, several students, colleges and universities used the hashtag #HEAPRisCheaper hashtag to tell the Minn. state legislator (#mnleg) why HEAPR is such an important thing to fund.
During the time that I have spent working with the Minnesota State University Student Association (MSUSA), I’ve gotten to enjoy and be blessed with seeing students come together to get legislators to benefit higher education; an issue I’ve been very found of thanks to MSUSA.
I think that this hashtag campaign easily shows how students, and people in general, can use social media to come together to make change. Or least people can bring to light issues that are important.
Here are some of the tweets that where sent out today as to why HEAPR is important to colleges and universities:
