Communications and Public Affairs


Avatars

Your avatar, or profile image, is your visual calling card. We create avatars for university-affiliated accounts so searchers can see that you're part of the University of South Carolina.

Your image is one of the most important aspects of your platform profile. It's how a searcher can recognize that you're (1) part of the University of South Carolina and (2) that you're you. Because they're so important to our university and our affiliated accounts, the Office of Communications and Public Affairs provides support for social media profile images university-wide.

Here's what they look like:

  • HRSM avatar
  • Giving avatar
  • Career Center avatar
  • russell house avatar


To request an official avatar, contact the Office of Communications and Public Affairs.

 

best practice

Don't Change

Because your profile image is such an important part of your unit's online ID, it's important that it remain consistent. That's why we recommend that your profile image should rarely (if ever) change.

pro tip

Re-Tweet Me, Bro

The university's official social accounts are significantly more likely to amplify unit messaging if the account has transitioned to the communications-approved avatar.
