Giving Joe Biden a run for his money as the best thing to come out of “the first state” lately, University of Delaware recently created this set of buttons to promote their social media efforts. The buttons feature the universities Blue Hen mascot, YoUDee, along with blue and yellow swag and the always important hashtag.
Drew Rifkin of UDel Admissions said that the buttons have been a “great social media initiative for our large open house programs” and Meredith Chapman of the university’s Communications and Marketing office said that the buttons are also popular for social media outreach when used “as a prize for sending a tweet at an event or checking in on Foursquare at Homecoming.” Apparently the buttons have been so popular among students, the six designs have become something of collector’s items.
Our favorite of the bunch has to been the glow in the dark YoUDee. According to his/her website, YoUDee and other blue hens have a reputation for courage and ferocity in battle, and we can’t think of anything more intimidating than a glowing blue hen on a dark night.
