Our social media presence is particularly strong with almost 3,000 followers on Instagram, 500 followers on Twitter, and a Telegram newsletter with 1.3k followers. Additionally, we reach thousands of students via our Discord newsletter, which is distributed across several servers.

Additionally, we have the capability to display announcements on the information screens across the campus, which allows us to get important information and updates to students in a timely and efficient manner.
