IND Monthly is on a mission to help the University of Louisiana at Lafayette's official Facebook page exceed 50,000 likes today. Do your part by clicking here.
UL’s official Facebook page was started on Feb. 16 of last year. This push to hit 50,000 is part of the "Geared Up" campaign to increase the university’s Facebook presence, raise awareness about the book store moving and let Lafayette know about the new Fan Store opening on Johnston Street in the old Goodwill building.
The campaign is coming to an end this week after a two-month push. If UL hits 50,000, which with your help will be exceeded today, it will have gotten some 8,500 likes in less than two months.
