Mike Wohl '07, an Alumni Representative on the Executive Committee of the Friends of Amherst Athletics and a known uber-user of social media, commented:
"Each of us has our preference for how and when we choose to get our Amherst sports information. In my case, I subscribe to many email list-serves from the SID and also love following my favorite teams on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. The various social media platforms provide a real-time way to share excitement and joy around Amherst sports and, most importantly, to continue to feel 'connected' to the teams, coaches, and other alumni that like and comment on the posts. Many times, a post will prompt me to reach out to a former teammate, coach, or current student-athlete with a congratulatory or supportive note. We tell alumni and parents that the Friends of Amherst Athletics, in its simplest form, is all about building a group of people with ideals of engagement, support, and community around Amherst Athletics. Social media is a great tool people can use to learn more about and grow their interest in Amherst Athletics and, as a consequence, we're hopeful that they'll also wish to be one of the many "Friends" of Amherst Athletics through which important financial support is directed to Amherst Athletics."
