Semester At Sea Blog
An event-specific blog written by Mary Carlson during this summer's Semester At Sea Voyage. In
a little over a month, it has received 13,000 page views and a fairly robust group of regular
readers and "commenters."

Public Affairs set up a "Fans of Jack Blackburn" group on Facebook, and in three weeks, the
"group" has 112 members. Because Facebook is organized by school affiliation, it's an especially
useful took for communicating with the U.Va. community.

YouTube Channel
This is still in its testing phase by the Web Communications group, but the U.Va. YouTube
channel has 19 videos online, ranging from commencement and finals speeches, to admissions
tour videos and U.Va. TV spots. The Finals Procession video received 6,700 views.

Headlines @ U.Va.
A daily email sent to over 3,200 subscribers, compiling general news about The University, UVA
Today stories, faculty and alumni in the news and links to U.Va. mentions in the media.

U.Va. Podcasts
Lectures and speeches around U.Va. in downloadable podcasts.

U.Va. Mobile RSS Feed
