Liberty was ranked alongside major institutions across the U.S., including state, Ivy League, and other private institutions. On both lists, Liberty was the only Virginia school recognized.

College Atlas, an encyclopedia of higher education, studied the social media efforts of more than 400 colleges and universities in order to compile the lists. The ranking included the top 30 colleges for influence and engagement, as well as the top 20 on five of the most popular social media platforms.

Liberty was ranked No. 17 for its Instagram presence, which was determined by number of followers (Liberty currently has more than 13,400 followers on Instagram) and average number of likes per post.
