"All these colleges are showing how it’s done in social media,” says Editor-in-Chief Dean Tsouvalas. “They get it.”

One aspect of Xavier’s social media that was highlighted is Xavier's "Ask the Expert" YouTube series, which features faculty and staff briefly discussing everything from Oscar nominations to turkey dinners. Other Jesuit Universities ranked were Boston College at 43, Marquette University at 56, Georgetown University at 58 and Seattle University at 69.
