OPINION: USC’s Instagram account is trash compared to those of other schools
Aesthetic is everything
In this day and age, Instagram aesthetic is everything. And while USC has a lot to offer, it is definitely lacking in the Instagram department.
USC has one of the most scenic campuses in the country, but the official USC Instagram (@uscedu) manages to make it look extremely unappealing. Not for nothing, but with a $5.1 billion endowment, you’d think USC could take the time, money, and effort to make their Instagram posts look like they were taken on something slightly better than an iPhone 4.
If you don't think these look bad enough on their own, compare them to some of the Instagram posts of other universities.
Congratulations to the 2,050 students — from 50 states and 82 countries — offered undergraduate admission to the Class of 2021. Over 18 percent of the admitted class will be the first in their families to attend a four-year college. "We continue to be awed and humbled by the interest Stanford receives from outstanding young people around the world," said Richard H. Shaw, dean of admission and financial aid. 📸: @the_kehoe
On March 23, 1868, the Organic Act was signed into law and the University of California was established. We celebrate March 23 as Charter Day — the university’s birthday. Today, March 23, 2018, is Berkeley’s 150th birthday. To all our Berkeley family — alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends — Fiat Lux and Go Bears! #ucberkeley #berkeley150 #sathertower #campanile #campanileesplanade #londonplanes
Somehow, even the individual USC schools have a much stronger Instagram game than the official USC account. Looks like someone needs to be promoted.
Us USC students definitely know what a good Instagram is. Tragically, it seems like our school doesn't.
