Which college is most media savvy? Which most fashionable? How about ‘‘most celebrified?’’ Or, for you tweeps out there, most #DuhWinning?

In this season of college rankings, the online magazine Her Campus, founded by Newton native Stephanie Kaplan and two friends from Harvard, has just published its own set of top 10 lists.

And they’re peppered with Boston area colleges.

Emerson, Harvard, and Boston University received high honors in the Social Media Savvy category, defined as ‘‘colleges that should be on the list of any Twitter addict.’’ Harvard also ranked No. 1 for ‘‘most celebrified.’’

Wellesley, meanwhile, came in tops as a Girl Power College, joined by Simmons, Tufts, and farther out of town, Smith.

Harvard made the list of Most Sexually Friendly schools, and BU was mentioned in the Newsworthy group. Both campuses were also declared #DuhWinning — among the most pop culture savvy colleges in America -- though George Washington University beat them for the top spot.

But nary a Boston area campus made the list for Most Sexually Conservative, Top Destination, Sorority Love or ‘‘We Have Spirit!’’

And Most Fashionable -- ‘‘where going to class is like walking the runway’’?

You’ll have to leave town for that.

To see the full list, go here.
