Governors State University (GSU) is a four-year university in Illinois that champions openness, innovation, and flexibility in a student's journey towards achieving both academic and career success.

A student playing with kids at GSUWe used social media to tell the stories of students, showcasing their GSU experience to the world. From previously-underserved teenagers and returning adults to local and international students with big dreams, we unveiled stories that were confined within the hearts, while promoting the university. Powerful imageries, videos, and engaging social content were part of our storytelling arsenal.
