Photo Submission to PSC Website 

Looking for photos to post to the UIC PSC website! Accepting any photos from organization events, org day, GBMs/EBMs, community/volunteer events, social events, Spring Fling week, fundraisers, marathons, etc. Some of the organization photos on the website are looking a bit old as well – couple years old really – so if any org would like to update those photos, please feel free to send those in as well.  

Please submit photos as JPEG or PNG to uic.psc.webmaster@gmail.com. Please DO NOT submit photos in a Word doc or pdf as that reduces the quality of the photos. If possible, but not mandatory, please include a description of the photo as well (not looking for an essay here, but you are more than welcome to submit one!).

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to contact me at uic.psc.webmaster@gmail.com
