Using images is a great way to capture attention in social media. Reflecting the NKU identity in your social posts can also help in capturing attention, particularly among constituents who are familiar with or looking to learn more about the university.
So we've designed ready-to-use social media templates that will carry the NKU look & feel wherever they may travel, helping to make your posts more engaging and to reinforce campus pride. Edit the templates in Microsoft PowerPoint, output in .png or .jpg format, then share away!
Tagging other social media accounts in your posts can increase your social media visibility and followers. If using a graphic on X, you can tag up to 10 accounts on the image without losing characters.
Only tag an account that is directly related to the content you are sharing.
