Welcome, Freshmen! Share Your Story & Win a FitBit

Attention incoming SDSU freshmen...

It's your last summer before you start college. And you're more than likely spending it doing any number of amazing things, from a last-hurrah road trip with your best high school buddies, to a summer job shadow to prep for your awesome future career, to assembling the ideal set of furniture for your residence hall.

So share your summer story with us—you could win a FitBit just for participating. Read on for the details.

Who Can Enter

What We're Looking For

We want to hear your stories—brief or lengthy—about how you're spending your final summer before kicking off your future here at SDSU. This could include:

  • A couple sentences about your awesome road trip to your favorite music festival
  • An essay on your prep process for making your first semester a success
  • A vlog on your very complicated packing process in preparation for res hall life
  • A Boomerang of your training regimen for watching Jackrabbit football
  • Whatever you're doing to amp up the excitement for the fall!

How to Enter

This is the important part—whatever content you want to submit**, just make sure to use #MySDSUSummer. Mention us on Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat (@sdstate) or Instagram, along with the hashtag, and you're officially entered!
