BE A RESPONSIBLE ATHLETE
Student-athletes need to behave appropriately at all times and in all forums. They should be particularly aware of social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, or other emerging technologies. In fact, enough cannot be said about the importance of being aware of these emerging technologies. Anyone can post a picture of another student, and an athlete whose exploits are publicized on Facebook might lose a scholarship offer. Check out the full story here: http://www.ncsasports.org/blog/2013/01/24/responsible-athlete-social-media/.
