Grad students, what makes UC Santa Barbara so special? Oh, there are so many things – award-winning departments, programs, and schools; our nationally recognized and imitated Grad Slam competition; exceptional, successful students and alumni; distinguished faculty; a spectacular, scenic campus location; to name just a few.
Now Forbes wants to hear from you. Every year it ranks America’s Top Colleges based on such factors as graduation rate; student satisfaction; and post-graduate success. The magazine is asking students and alums to tell them, via social media, what makes their college special.
Use the hashtag #MyTopCollege (and #UCSB) on your Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook posts to make your voices heard. Forbes has created an interactive national map that shows which campuses have the most school spirit. As you can see in the College Leaderboard above, as of today, July 14, Cal State Fullerton and San Diego State University lead the country in school spirit.
Forbes plans to publish its annual Top Colleges ranking on July 30. “Everyone who submits their own college fun fact or unique tradition has a chance to appear [on Forbes' My Top College website] and in Forbes magazine,” Forbes says.
So share a photo, a fun fact, or a simple reason why you think UC Santa Barbara is tops in the nation. Don't forget the hashtags #MyTopCollege and #UCSB. Read a Forbes blog post about the campaign.
