#MyTopCollege Instagram Challenge

Every year, Forbes Magazine provides an opportunity for students across the U.S. to show-and-tell the world how their school has shaped and inspired them as part of the #MyTopCollege campaign. This is our chance to show our beautiful campus and all it has to offer to the world.
