#GoddardIs is a social media storytelling initiative that seeks to showcase the depth, diversity and academic rigor of Goddard students’ work and the impact of Goddard alumni in their communities. Using the searchable hashtag #GoddardIs will connect current students with alumni while inviting prospective students to explore the unique tenets of a Goddard education in action.
Goddard alumni and students are unique: we are a community of holistic, dynamic, and engaged critical thinkers. We are Goddard’s number one recruitment tool. By participating in #GoddardIs, you can inspire students of the future and contribute to the longevity of this amazing institution. – Nicolette Stosur-Bassett, BA ’13 and current MA student.
What is a hashtag?
A hashtag is a label used on social networking sites that makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content. Users create and use hashtags by placing the “#” character in front of a word or un-spaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end. Searching for a specific hashtag (i.e., #GoddardIs) will then populate each message that has been tagged with it.

How does #GoddardIs benefit the Goddard community?
It can be challenging to describe a Goddard education to prospective students and these unknowns can deter future students from considering Goddard as their school of choice. #GoddardIs offers unique access and insight into the Goddard experience in today’s world by using social media to showcase the lives, work, and accomplishments of students and alumni. Additionally, it will create a user-generated database of student and alumni work, providing a wealth of resources to strengthen and preserve the Goddard story for the community at large.
