Help us show the world what makes Chico State great by participating in Forbes’ annual #MyTopCollege contest.

All you have to do is post about us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook between now and August 3, 2016, showing your school spirit and what makes Chico State unique. Photos are encouraged, so share campus shots and your lovely faces. The more the better, so post as many times as you like!

Submissions MUST INCLUDE our handle @chicostate, the tag #MyTopCollege and be publicly viewable to be counted. (Please make sure to adjust the privacy settings on your post or profile so Forbes can find it.)

You can, of course, post about whatever you like, but to make it easy, we’ve come up with different themes for each of the four weeks of the contest!

July 11–17, 2016

Sense of Place Week: We all know Chico is a special place—from the beautiful campus and local community to the people who make it a home. This week, share the places and features of Chico that keep you grounded.

July 18–24, 2016

Wildcat Week: Chico State is not just a place—it’s a community. And our Wildcats are what make it special. Tell us about the friends, mentors, and fellow Wildcats that changed your life.

July 25–31, 2016

Bridges Week: Whether crossing one of the nine bridges over Big Chico Creek or launching off to a new job or adventure abroad, you know Chico State serves as a bridge to your future. Share where Chico helped you go!

August 1–3, 2016 (short week!)

Excellence Week: Why are we truly the best? Let’s shout out the majors, programs, and classes that truly make us a top university.

Join us in showing Forbes, and the world what makes Chico State your #MyTopCollege!
