AllofE Announces SMASHUP Partnership with Kent State University

7-12-2011
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- AllofE is partnering with Kent State University for its latest university SMASHUP project. The SMASHUP will serve as the university's social media hub, giving students, parents, faculty, staff and the community a place to interact with the university through social media.

The Kent State SMASHUP, or social media mashup, will aggregate all of the university's social media accounts in one place, giving all accounts from across the university the exposure they deserve.

"Kent State wanted a way to make their social media more interactive and to bring their online brand to a whole new level," said Katie Brosious, AllofE product manager. "They already use a lot of social media, so this is really a natural progression for them to make what they are already doing a lot more successful and to reach a lot more people."

Kent State is the sixth university that has selected SMASHUP as its choice of social media mashup. Kent State joins Youngstown State University, Northern Illinois University, DePaul University, Our Lady of the Lake University and the University of New Haven (launching soon) as AllofE's latest SMASHUP implementation.
