Social Media Ambassadors (SMAs) are residents who assist the I-House Communications department with social media, blogging, video production, fundraising, and special initiatives. They serve as the friendly reporters “down the hall” capturing the memorable I-House moments. Chan'Cellore Makanjuola was our resident Social Media Ambassador during the 2019-2020 academic year and continues in this role with a summer internship in journalism.
