There officially is a see-saw battle for the top spot on the podium. Princeton’s picture of McCosh 50 lecture hall garnered yet another four-figure total (1,038 photo “likes,” or 21.5%) that catapulted the Tigers to “Academic” gold, their second of the Alumpics. Just like their previous gold, the Jersey gang edged out their New England rival, Dartmouth, who brought home the silver with an impressive 16.4% of their following responding to their image of Environmental Studies Professor, Ross Virginia. After four days of competition, Princeton and Dartmouth have owned the top two spots of the medal stand and enter Day 5 locked in a tie at the top of the medal standings.
Cornell made if four for four in earning bronze medals as the Big Red tallied up over 800 likes for their photo of a 3-D printer that has the ability to manufacture human body parts. After four days of competition, Cornell, Dartmouth, and Princeton are the only institutions to medal. MIT deserves an honorable mention for their nearly 5% bump in engagement between Day 3 and Day 4. Can the Engineers ride this momentum and break-up the squatting seen thus far on the medal stand? Only time will tell.
Today’s theme is “Campus Architecture” and promises to be a heated battle considering the age and beauty associated with these campuses. Be sure to follow all the action via the official #Alumpics hashtag!
