#EPIversary: Our Student-run Social Media Agency Turns One

A version of this post also appears on Recultured.com

We are extremely thrilled and immensely proud to celebrate the first year anniversary of one of our student-run projects, Epicentr. In its first year, Epicentr has garnered over 20 members and helped 9 clients to date. Students have been given hands-on opportunities to flex their digital marketing and online community management muscles while learning and applying best practices to help local businesses achieve their objectives through the effective use of social media.

Orane Cheung, Agency Director of Epicentr, has a lineup of articles that will highlight some notable moments from their eventful first year. We invite you to join us in our journey back to their humble beginnings and reflect on the best moments in Epicentr’s history. Buckle up – we’re going time travelling.

With each passing semester, new talents arise and new friendships are formed. Every member brought their energy and ideas, and helped shape Epicentr into the Agency it is today. If any of our members are reading this, cheers to you! Here’s to many more years to come. Cheers!

Epicentr is a student-run social media agency under the SFU Social Media Network. We provide free social media services on-par with those of for-profit agencies to local Vancouver businesses and non-profit organizations to improve their online presence. We offer students the opportunity to gain experience by working hands-on with clients to develop social media strategies and campaigns. Social Starts Here. (epicentr.ca | @epicentrVan)
