Spirit and Heart Photo Submissions

Do you have a creative eye for taking photos that tell stories? If so, we want you to capture images – on and off campus – that tell the story of USI's spirit, heart and engagement. We'll feature our favorite work on the back of USI's magazine, illume.

Here are some examples of what USI's spirit and engagement might look like. However, we want your personal take on it, so be creative. The best images will be close up and tell a story of one subject.

Send your photos to, and put "Spirit Photo" in the subject line.

In the body of the email, include:

  • your name
  • major and graduation year
  • title and date of image
  • description/details surrounding the photo and why it represents the "Spirit and Heart of USI"
    • For example: This was a service learning project at the Evansville Rescue Mission, where 25 USI art majors helped paint a mural in the Mission's recreational room. It represents USI's spirit of giving.
