Are you a good digital citizen?

OSU-CHS is committed to creating and maintaining a productive living and learning community that fosters the intellectual, personal, cultural and ethical development of its students. All members of the OSU family are encouraged to follow the digital citizenship tips below when interacting with others online:

  • Be smart. Think before you post. Answer these questions: Is it helpful? Is it kind? Is it legal? If your answer to any of these is “no” or you aren’t sure, don’t post the content.
  • Have fun. Digital media and apps are designed to encourage engagement and interaction. Use it to build others up, instead of tearing them down. Be a part of the conversation. There is value in diversity and sharing different ideas and perspectives.
  • Advocate for a good cause. Do you love #okstate, your student organization, a car, an animal or your hometown? Post with passion. Use the apps and sites you are comfortable with to advocate and share information about the things you love most.
