Last week, we hosted our first-ever social media photo contest, #TheCloseUpClose. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni submitted dozens of beautiful photographs of the campus. The photograph that was chosen to be the next cover photo for General’s social media presence was submitted by Hank Tuell IV. Thanks to Hank and everyone else who participated. We were so excited by the participation, we made a short video to share some of the photos that were submitted.
Please continue photographing your experiences here and sharing them with us on Facebook. Do not feel limited to submitting pictures of buildings or even events exclusively on campus – but also a picnic with your classmates in Central Park, or a study group in the dorms, or activities at your Wisdom Year site. This type of engagement allows us to continue to grow as a community and also shares the campus experience with our friends who aren’t able to participate in our community in the flesh every day.
These photographs tell our story: to each other and also to the wider community of alumni, partners, and friends. Make sure that your part of the story is told.
