ONE DAY until Facebook voting starts for the 2016-17 Off-Campus Study Photo Contest! This entry in last year's contest, Grey Stained Chicago by Dy'Anna Augustus (@knoxcollege1837) shows the city during one of its less-than-bright days. Dy'Anna said, The other passengers on the boat did not want to take a picture of 'that Chicago' - they wanted a snapshot of the pristine Chicago skyline that brochures and travel sites boasted. But I took the photo. This was the Chicago I grew up in. This is where I call home. #ACMStudyAway #ContestCountdown
