What kind of photo will win you a prize?

Show us your #AQLife! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • AQ Study - Pose with your favorite professor. Take a pic with other students after class. Post a photo of your study session in the library.
  • AQ in Action - Take a pic at your favorite AQ event. Athletics games, AQPB events, club meetings - share a photo from whatever AQ-sponsored event you enjoy the most!
  • AQ Spirit - Show us your Saint Spirit! Pose with friends in your favorite AQ gear. Snap a selfie of your face painted in AQ colors.
  • AQ Throwback - Not a current student? Dig out that scrapbook and show us what AQ looked like in your day!
  • AQ in GR - Head off campus and show off your AQ pride in downtown Grand Rapids. Get a pic in your AQ gear with your favorite ArtPrize entry. Snap a picture of an AQ bumpersticker or window decal. Spot another Saint out and about in their AQ gear? Pose for a group photo with them!
  • AQ Outside - Snap a photo of the fall colors on campus. Share a pic of AQ's various wildlife in action.

What kinds of photos will get me into trouble?

Obscene, provocative or otherwise questionable content will not be considered. We retain sole discretion as to what constitutes inappropriate content. Follow the AQ Social Media Guidelines and when in doubt, don't post it!
