1. Student organizations to be featured on student government Instagram

DePauw Student Government is taking the student activities fair to Instagram this semester. 

In a direct message, DePauw Student Government (DSG), said they will be featuring all recognized organizations on their Instagram in coming weeks. An email to students with contact information for organization leaders will accompany the Instagram feature. “Clubs will have a 30-60 second promotional video on DSG and Campus Activities on Instagram,” DSG said in a message. DSG decided on this alternate route after the normal campus activities fair for first-years was cancelled due to complications with  COVID-19.
