The Most Try-Hard Schools In America Based On Social Media Habits

These Schools Are The Most Try-Hard Schools In America

The saying “act like you’ve been there before” definitely applies to social media. No one needs to see you tweeting about how much beer you’re going to drink tonight or how hungover you are after a night of partying. That’s just a bad look. Feels like you’re trying to convince your peers that you are in the cool crowd or some shit. Spoiler alert: you’re not. This obviously happens a lot with college students. Some schools do it more often than others, though.

A content marketing firm named Fractl ranked universities based on which ones tweet the most about alcohol. The data compiled is from the 2014-2015 school year, and the company used the buzzwords “drunk,” “drinking,” “alcohol,” “booze,” “beer” and “wine” to determine which schools tweeted the most about their consumption. They then broke it down by large schools — those with enrollment over 15,000 — and medium schools — those with enrollment from 10,000-15,000. Huffington Post published the results.

Large Schools
1. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
2. West Virginia University
3. Virginia Commonwealth University
4. Ohio University
5. California State University, Chico
6. Indiana University of Pennsylvania
7. University of South Carolina
8. Boise State University
9.Eastern Michigan University
10. Bowling Green State University

At least UNC can say they won something in the last 24 hours.

Medium Schools
1. Massachusetts Institute of Technology
2. Savannah College of Art and Design
3. College of Charleston
4. Johnson & Wales University
5. Tufts University
6. Strayer University
7. University of Southern Maine
8. Yale University
9. University of Michigan – Flint
10. University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Ha! Nerds tweeting about alcohol. Priceless.

    Two things:

    1) UNC and South Carolina surprise me.

    2) Strayer is an online “school” that practically gives diplomas away, the mere mention of which tarnishes the sanctity of TFM.

    If we’d “try harder” to promote social justice and safe spaces on our college campuses, we would be promoting progress. Fellow fraternity men, join me in the fight against shaming and let’s join together to promote gender neutral bathrooms.

      Only had to read your username to know your comment is worthless and not worth my time. Fuck off

      I’d skull fuck your cat if I could. I know you own a cat because real men own dogs and you’re a pussy. No pun intended

    I assume seeing MIT as top of medium schools has more of the alcohol posts with “my I just got a 23% on my solid mechanics test better drunk to drown my stress and anxiety” vs “let’s rage and get drunk”

    They should have just used which schools had the most students who favorited and retweeted TFM posts.

        I think it’s safe to say that this list is accurate, TFM writers are experts on everything “try-hard”.

    Yet, TFM posts about drinking all the time. So who really is the try hard here? Fuck you Harrison.

    Apparently students in Flint don’t need water to cure hangovers. Good on them for continuing to drink.
