In nine months, Baylor’s official Instagram account has grown from scratch to the No. 5 most-followed university Instagram account of any Division I-A school in the country.
With almost 8,500 followers, Baylor trails only the official university accounts from Wisconsin, Michigan, Florida and Syracuse. (If you add in athletic accounts, Baylor comes in ninth overall behind UCLA, Oregon and Oklahoma football.)
Since last September, the account has shared almost 700 pictures — mostly taken by university photographers, but also sharing some outstanding shots snapped by Baylor students and alumni. (Want to have your pics shared with the Baylor community? Tag them in Instagram with the hashtag “#MyBaylor.”)
This summer, Bears are encouraged to take photos while on mission trips and study abroad programs, at internships, while taking summer school or enjoying any other Baylor-related summer fun. Post your shots to Instagram with the tag “#MyBaylorSummer,” and the official Instagram account will share some favorites over the next few months.
Sic ’em, Instagrammers!
