March Madness 2017: Over 30% of the bracket is on Handshake

Posted Mar 17, 2017 by Jordan Pedraza

March is a special time for college basketball enthusiasts as the NCAA® Championship games heat up. This season is especially exciting for us at Handshake to watch, as more than a quarter of the teams in this year’s tournament are using Handshake to empower their students and democratize opportunity.

With more than 3.5 million students, 170 universities, and 120,000 employers who already partner with us to level the playing field, we’d like to congratulate the 23 Handshake schools who are vying for the championship and wish them luck with the rest of the tournament, including:

  • Baylor University
  • Butler University
  • Marquette University
  • Princeton University
  • University of Arkansas
  • University of Miami
  • University of Virginia
  • Villanova University
  • Wake Forest University
  • Wichita State University
