The companion to the Student Social Media Academy:

Mallie Rust // Students Want Authenticity Over Ads on Social Media


What if something as simple as a tweet could help you make your next career move – while you’re still in college? My guest this week can tell you firsthand what that experience is like. Mallie Rust is my content and marketing coordinator, a freelance editor, TexasMedia student, and even an amateur ballroom dancer. As a college senior Mallie shares her experience growing up on social media, how campuses can best use social to connect with current and future students and explains why she’s so passionate about the Oxford comma.
