More Eyes on Emory

As Emory strives to become a household name, the University recently ranked third on a list of U.S. institutions that achieved significant “media momentum,” defined as having the greatest increase in media citations during the last year.

The Global Language Monitor, which documents, tracks, and studies trends in language worldwide, conducted an intensive analysis of colleges and universities in the media and ranked them by their presence in global electronic and print outlets, including the Internet and blogs.

In the category of media momentum, Vanderbilt and the University of Virginia placed ahead of Emory at spots one and two, and Emory was followed by Rice University and the University of Texas, Austin.

The top-ranked schools for media coverage were Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Michigan, while the University of California system as a whole made a strong showing.
