ABSTRACT Faculty and students who wanted to continue the conversation after the bell rang used to do so in hallways and offices over cups of coffee. Now, a variety of electronic formats are available to enable these conversations to continue virtually, including online discussion boards, electronic mail, and, increasingly, social media sites such as Facebook. This paper explores three case studies of social media use in extending communication outside the university’s walls, including faculty-led and student-led efforts as well as one directed at program alumni.
