In this day and age, almost everyone has a smart phone with the latest features. These typically include access to the Twitter feeds and Facebook pages. The following is a list of pages and feeds every student should check out, “like” or “follow” to be an informed highlander.
Radford Highlander Festival – The 16th annual festival featuring various traditional Scottish games along with booths that showcase local artists, foods and Scottish clans. This year’s festival will be held on Oct. 13.
Radford University Highlanders – The Facebook official page for everything Radford sports. The cover photo for this page regularly features “This Week at RU,” an image that normally shows two athletes from two different sports and advertises the games for that week.
Radford University – This is the page posts pictures from major RU events. It also posts random facts in “Reasons to Love RU” and features pictures in “Scene on Campus.”
Student Activities at Radford University – Posting almost everyday, Student Activities at RU keeps students up to date on all that is going on in the Bonnie Hurlburt Student Center. They post updates to reschedule if events that are held on the plaza get rained out.
