College Student Social Media Materials
With many students returning home or to somewhere other than their college residence, the U.S. Census Bureau has provided guidance for students and parents on how to complete the census accurately. Use these social media messages and graphics to inform your community, and update them to make them more relevant given your specific needs.

Translated Q&A Posters
This set of posters answers common questions about the census, including why participation is important, whether someone will come to your door, who gets counted, if there is a question about citizenship. Post these in high-traffic areas, on message boards, public gathering places, or wherever people in your community might see them.
