HCHC Student Inauguration Photo & Video Contest

Dear HCHC Students,

On Thursday, October 29, we will celebrate the Inauguration of the 21st President of HCHC. This is an historic event, and we're not only looking for your attendance, but also your active participation in the first HCHC Presidential Inauguration of the social media age!

Now through Thursday, October 29 at midnight, post your best photos and videos on Instagram and Facebook using #HCHCInauguration, #HCHC, #21for21, and #HellenicCollegeHolyCross.

Christopher (selfies, solo shots, group pictures, with the hawk and wildlife, etc.). Stop him! Sit with him! Pose him! Show your best smile! Tell him the Chief of Staff sent you and you want to win!
