Why do we devote so much time and energy to this public affairs work? We do it to raise awareness about Vanderbilt, wherever and whenever we can, so that when prospective students, faculty, friends and neighbors hear ‘Vanderbilt’ they associate it with excellent academic programs, innovative research, worldclass health care, the best students, a gorgeous campus, a dynamic hometown, rockin’ athletics and more. And, by one measure at least, we’re succeeding.
Trend Topper Media Buzz has posted its first ranking of U.S. colleges according to their presence in the media, both traditional and electronic. Vanderbilt tops the list of the schools with the greatest media momentum. See the full rankings here or read the UPI story.
