We’re #10!!

Of the Top Ten Google searches by Chicagoans in 2010.

There are four school related items in the list, including three higher education institutions, but there is an interesting difference between them and us.

#2 is “UIC Blackboard,” so that’s clearly students (and faculty) looking for info about the school where they already are. #7 is “NEIUPort,” so I’m guessing that’s pretty much the same thing.

And then there’s us, just “Harold Washington College;” I’m guessing that means that the people looking for information on us are looking out of interest rather than necessity. We didn’t get much love from the writer who chose to say nothing about us, but still that’s some pretty good “brand recognition,” I’d say…wouldn’t you?
