  2. If you have an iPhone, download . You’ll find the most recent headlines, events and Twitter updates. (Hang tight Android users, we're working on an app for you.)
  3. Speaking of Twitter, follow @SolonPatch. We keep that updated throughout the day with links to articles and other interesting information. 
  4. And don't forget to "like" Solon Patch on Facebook, too (you know college kids will be logged in, anyway!) You can post on our wall, ask questions and get the latest news through our status updates. Plus you might be selected as the Solon Patch Friend of the Day! 
  5. Do something exception at school? Want to tell your community? Tell everyone in an announcement! Local Editor Chris Mazzolini will feature your news on the homepage.
  6. We know you'll be busy hitting the books, but students can sign up to be a Solon Patch blogger to write about football, campus life, what you miss about Solon, etc.!

Enjoy going to college ... and don't forget those rolls of quarters for laundry and multiple packs of Ramen.
