Snapchat Takeovers

Organizations and students takeover our Snapchat account, giving them access for one day. We recommend users (both students and employers) create content that is both informative and fun. Examples include:

Student takeovers

Follow these instructions to make the most of your takeover.


  • Start with a video introduction. Let people know who you are (year, major, hometown), what company you are interning for, what your role is with the company, and what your employer does.
  • Illustrate a day-in-the-life of an intern/employee at the company. Blend: what your typical day looks like, and what is so great about working for your company.
  • Get creative! Feel free to experiment with filters or whatever else you enjoy about Snapchat. Try mixing things up between photo and video.
  • Keep your entire story to about 180 seconds, or about 3 minutes (give or take).
  • Have fun! You get to share with the whole university how great your internship is!
  • Add music to your snaps – If you have a Spotify account, find the song you want to use and play it, then open Snapchat, and record your snap while the song is still playing. Timing is critical with this type of snap so plan ahead.
  • Feel free to do a Q and A. If you choose to do so, here are some things to note:
    • If you respond to a question you can only respond through Snapstory. So let everyone know what the question was and then respond.
    • Do not ever reply to questions by snapping an individual account. We can’t keep track of this so please do not do so under any circumstances.
    • If you receive any inappropriate snaps, please let us know IMMEDIATELY and we will block that user.

Do not:

  • Use images or videos with:
    • Consumption of drugs or alcohol or promotion of alcohol culture
    • Nudity or provocative posts
    • Inappropriate language
    • No hate speech or bullying
    • Follow others on our account
  • Switch your phone from vertical to horizontal to make viewing easier
  • Share or promote your personal social media accounts with others

We reserve the right to delete snaps and suspend your takeover if you post anything violating the student code of conduct.
