Today we have some audience participation opportunities for all of you who are on social media. The first one is that Forbes Magazine is running a #MyTopCollege contest. Here’s what they say about it:
“Show Your School Spirit – Every year FORBES ranks America’s Top Colleges based on graduation rate, student satisfaction, post-graduate success and student debt. This year, we want to hear from you. We are asking students and alumni across the country to tell us all about what makes their college special in our #MyTopCollege social media campaign. Watch which campuses have the most school spirit as we fill in this interactive map and get ready to publish our annual Top Colleges ranking on July 30. Everyone who submits their own college fun fact or unique tradition has a chance to appear here and in FORBES magazine. Use #mytopcollege on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.”
So if you have a Twitter account, you can help us by tweeting about Wake Forest and why we are your (or your student’s!) top college. Make sure to use the following hashtags in your tweets: #WFU and #MyTopCollege. For example, this was our entry from the WFUParents Twitter account.
If you are on Facebook or Instagram, you want to use the following hashtags: #wfu #MyTopCollege #WakeForest #GoDeacs as you add your favorite MyTopCollege thoughts. Please do participate if you can, because we want to see Wake Forest at the top of the list!
The second area where you can have an impact on Wake Forest is by helping our young alumna Emily James ’14, who is in the Top 20 of the Fox TV show So You Think You Can Dance. You can see clips of Emily on the SYTYCD website. And you also have the opportunity to vote for her each week (see the “vote” option on the page; voting only happens once a week). We would LOVE to have a Deac Dancer win this – so share the show’s link with your family and friends (and your student!) and help keep Emily’s dream alive: http://www.fox.com/dance/
Finally, as a follow up from yesterday. for those of you that enjoyed our brief coverage of the LENS program yesterday, there is a larger story on the Wake Forest News site today.
