The Global Language Monitor tallied up how many times universities and colleges were mentioned in the print media and online (including blogs). Not surprisingly, Harvard topped the list (with this blog post only helping its cause), while Columbia and the University of Michigan rounded out the top three. Colorado College, Williams College, and the University of Richmond were tops in the liberal arts college category.

As for the backhanded compliment category, otherwise known as "Most Momentum," Vanderbilt, the University of Virginia, and Emory were the most improved universities; Hamilton, Pomona, and Skidmore colleges were best in the liberal arts group.
