Social Media Toolkit

Give2ODU Day Social Media Toolkit

Give2ODU Day is an online challenge issued to alumni, parents, students and friends of the University to make a statement of support. Monetary donations help keep tuition lower and make Old Dominion University’s offerings more competitive. Your money helps open doors to new opportunities for ODU students and provides them with the tools they need to not only be successful but excel at whatever they undertake.

On March 17th, help us meet our Give2ODU Day goal by using this social media toolkit.

How you can help

Spreading the word on social media is one of the easiest and most effective ways you can help us!
