The goal of the research is to identify the ways in which social media could play a role in assisting Georgia Tech students to find mental health support.  Mental health disorders are extremely prevalent on college campuses, and anxiety and depression, in particular, have been shown to have a negative effect on academic success.  Despite the fact that mental health professionals and program are available to students with mental health conditions, many are not seeking help from their campus resources.
Tiamat Media is an ARG that was specifically designed for Dragon Con 2013, the largest multimedia fan conventions in the country. It was designed to fit within the socio-cultural context of the convention, appropriating established convention actions into the design. Our narrative revolved around the fictional company we created called Tiamat Media. Tiamat Media is a publishing company that specializes in publishing fan artwork. It operates under the guise of helping fans spread their artwork and encouraging fan empowerment.
This ongoing study investigates the effect that proximate criminal activity has on emotional expression in social media. Proximity to crime and well constant fear of crime can have great negative psychological effects on individuals. Social media currently being one of the most popular means of publicly expressing personal opinions and emotions, we expect to find an effect of temporal and spatial proximity to crime on social media mood expression and other patters of online communication.
