LSU recognized for social media efforts

LSU ranked No. 10 on StudentAdvisor.com’s annual Top 100 Social Media Colleges rankings, based on the best social media practices at colleges and universities in the United States.

StudentAdviser.com says “LSU dedicates its LSUStudents Twitter account to all things student. Daily tweets keep students up-to-date on the latest academic and social happenings of day-to-day student life. Geaux Tigers!”

The Top 100 schools use social media to give students insights into the schools’ culture, personality, and DNA, according to Dean Tsouvalas, editor-in-chief of StudentAdvisor.com. This helps students determine the right fit for them beyond college rankings and marketing.

Tulane University ranked No. 83 for TruTU, the student-run amalgamation for all things social media at Tulane—from Instagram to student-made videos to their virtual tour of Cribs-style dorm rooms rules.

LSU ranked No. 8 in last year’s rankings. Tulane was No. 72.

The other members of this year’s Top 10, in order, are Harvard University; Stanford University; Johns Hopkins University; Yale University; Duke University; Princeton University; Full Sail University; University of Oregon; and Ohio State University.
