A picture is worth a thousand words. The Communication and Public Relations (CPR) Division encourages the OIST community to share with the rest of the world some of the exciting things happening at the university and on the island. To do this, CPR has created OIST's Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, and Instagram accounts. Flickr is an image and video sharing site on the Internet, which allows the OIST community to store and share photos with the world. Instagram is a social media platform, which allows OIST to share aspects of daily life, as well as the look and feel of the campus, to prospective students, staff and the general public.
