As the world turns its attention to the London Olympics, alumni from Princeton and several peer institutions will have a chance to compete for gold of a different kind on Facebook. The Alumni Association of Princeton University is one of nine groups participating in Alumpics 2012, a friendly social media contest that aims to find out which college has the most spirited alumni.
The competition includes five Ivy League schools plus Stanford and MIT. Beginning July 30, each school will post a daily alumni-related photo (or “alumpic”) on Facebook and ask alumni fans to click the “like” button. Medals will be awarded to the top three schools at the end of each day (weekdays only, through Aug. 10). At the end of the competition, the leader in the medal count will be named the Alumpics champion.
