Social Media

Community Standards

The University’s official social media accounts are administered and moderated by University Relations. Additionally, individual departments, students clubs and organizations, and University Teams within the University administer registered accounts across multiple social media platforms.

Florida Poly encourages interaction, discussion, comments, questions, and criticism. We ask that you keep comments and posts relevant and respectful.
