San Jacinto College’s Schools App on Facebook

With the semester well under way, we hope that everything is going smoothly!

You may remember receiving an email from inviting you to become members of San Jacinto College’s Schools App on Facebook. We’d like to take another opportunity to invite you to join us and learn more about Schools App.  We’re very excited to bring you this opportunity as part of a grant the College received.

This application functions as a “Facebook within Facebook” just for San Jacinto College students, faculty, and staff. Within this application you’ll be able to create a profile naming your hometown and areas of interest. You’ll also be able to interact with students and fellow faculty and staff members in an environment specifically created just for San Jac!

This application runs completely separate from your normal Facebook profile. There’s NO need to create a separate Facebook profile for this purpose (actually, having two Facebook profiles is againstFacebook’s terms of service). Anything you post within this application won’t be displayed on your personal profile, and vice versa. If you’re interested in using social media in the classroom, this is a great way to test the waters.

We’re hoping you’ll join us on Schools App! More than 3,000 students and 200 faculty and staff members already have.  If you’re an advisor or member of a club or faculty organization, you’ll have a chance to create a community within this application specifically for your cause – you can even create a community for your class!

So what are you waiting for? Visit to get started now!

If you have any questions, email Alyssa Tinsley, the College’s social media coordinator at We’ll see you on Schools App! Have a great semester!
