Forbes.com has a new post citing the best online presences for colleges and universities. Marquette, my alma mater, does very well. So, of course, I thought I'd share it. Kudos to the entire MU team!
The full story is here. It begins, "Who’d have thought Marquette was the most active Tweeter? Or that Cal crushes every school in YouTube views? Must be all those Zach Maynard highlight reels, right? Fun fact: Yellow is more popular than red on school sites."
Full disclosure, I'm on the Interactive Marketing Committee at Marquette but that doesn't tarnish the fact that I'm proud of the fine work at Marquette and this cool national exposure for a Milwaukee university.
A final note, and a testament to the social media savvy at MU. Thanks to some help from Marquette students, Forbes changed its original story that had Syracuse as the top Twitter school.
A life-long and passionate community leader and Milwaukeean, Jeff Sherman is a co-founder of OnMilwaukee.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Marquette University, as a Warrior. He holds an MBA from Cardinal Stritch University, and is the founding president of Young Professionals of Milwaukee (YPM)/Fuel Milwaukee.
Early in his career, Sherman was one of youngest members of the Greater Milwaukee Committee, and currently is involved in numerous civic and community groups - including board positions at The Wisconsin Center District, Wisconsin Club and Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. He's honored to have been named to The Business Journal's "30 under 30" and Milwaukee Magazine's "35 under 35" lists.
He owns a condo in Downtown and lives in greater Milwaukee with his wife Stephanie, his son, Jake, and daughter Pierce. He's a political, music, sports and news junkie and thinks, for what it's worth, that all new movies should be released in theaters, on demand, online and on DVD simultaneously.
He also thinks you should read OnMilwaukee each and every day.
