Social media has brought an entirely new dimension to education. The Shorty Award for #college will be presented to an institution of higher learning who uses social media to effectively engage with students and, most importantly, demonstrates school spirit. Accounts nominated in this category must be accredited colleges or universities with a ranking in U.S. News and World Report.
