Undergraduate Research ‘Twitter Takeover’ – Nov. 12

UFV has been challenged by Vancouver Island University to help represent Canada in the #URExchange Twitter Takeover next Thursday, November 12 (9am-2pm PST). Sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) based out of Washington D.C., the ‘takeover’ will be a lively celebration of the creativity, ingenuity, and research excellence of undergraduate students across the globe.

How UFV students can participate:

On Thursday, Nov. 12 use the hashtags #URExchange, #URExchangeTRUENORTH, and #UFVresearch to tweet –

  • about a current or past research project / experience
  • a special memory (e.g., studying abroad, presenting at a conference)
  • a message to your research mentor(s)
  • visual content related to your research – a video, photo, article, poster, etc.

Whatever you post is 100% up to you. Just be sure to tag the UFV Research Office @UFVresearch AND @UFVscience so we can support you by liking & re-tweeting!

If you don’t have Twitter, feel free to submit content to danielle.mijoburch@ufv.ca by Nov. 11 so the Research Office may tweet on your behalf. (270 characters or less, images and links welcome, please include your name/major as you would like them displayed.)

It will be a real tweet to celebrate your research!
