Saint Francis University has a chance to be named Forbes’ Top College. The 5th annual #MyTopCollege Social Media campaign runs from June 18th to August 10th. The overall theme for the contest is “Impact: How did your school transform your life?” Students, alumni, staff and faculty are encouraged to post campus photos that pertain to different weekly themes set by Forbes.

Every week, Forbes tallies the top 10 schools with the most posts on Instagram and Twitter related to the theme, and recaps the weekly results on their website.
