If you are reading this right now, you already know: Marquette fans are arguably the most social media-savvy in all of college athletics.
The @muathletics Twitter account boasts more than 10,000 followers - the most of any athletic department without football - while our Facebook page has been liked by more than twice as many MU fans. Meanwhile, the Marquette YouTube channel has recorded more than 1 million video views since its creation less than three years ago and the most truly advanced social media connoisseurs have supported Marquette on Foursquare, Pinterest and Google+.
As a small token of appreciation for this tremendous support, we would like to highlight some of the most passionate Marquette fans that participate in social media. To nominate yourself or another person for the prestigious honor of "Social Media Fan of the Week," simply Tweet @muathletics with the hashtag: #MUSocial, or post to our Facebook timeline, a short note about yourself and why you love Marquette. Of course, photos and videos are encouraged, as we'd love to be able to share them here on the blog.
If you have any questions, you should always feel free to contact us via Twitter @muathletics and we'll try to get back to you ASAP.
Thanks again for your tremendous support, and for sharing your love for all-things Marquette through social media.
