Student's springtime shot Elon's new cover photo

After a week of voting on student-submitted pictures, Elon University's Facebook page has a new cover photo.

Greco's picture will remain the University's Facebook cover photo until the beginning of Commencement season.
Elon University’s Facebook page has a new student-submitted cover photo, after a picture by Kerry Greco ’15 garnered 284 “likes” in an online contest.

Greco’s shot, which features an Elon University sign flanked by flowers, narrowly beat out another of her submissions.

After opening up the contest in early April and requesting photos that captured the spirit of Elon, the University Communications staff narrowed the submissions to 10 finalists. Fans of the University’s Facebook page then had a week to choose which was their favorite. The photo with the most “likes” won.

“I feel like this photo captures the coming of spring to Elon’s campus and the campus itself as it unfolds behind the sign,” Greco, a strategic communications major, said. “Capturing images of flowers and beautiful sights all over campus during the past few weeks has reminded me of the beauty that comes during every season at Elon.”

Greco’s picture will remain the University’s Facebook cover photo until the beginning of Commencement season.
