Furthermore, the Twitter chat was a success because prospective students, students and faculty participated in the online conversation. For more about what questions were asked and answered during the Twitter chat, view the highlights below.

Wait … what is a Twitter chat you ask?

Twitter chats, also known as a Twitter party or tweet chat, happen with a group of people who all tweet around the same topic using a specific hashtag (#), allowing followers on Twitter to have a somewhat “exclusive” conversation.

Chats typically happen at a specific time and date, often repeating weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Twitter chats originate through and users generally learn about upcoming chats via word-of-mouth campaigns and other organic promotion.

There were several highlights from the Twitter chat including:
