Adam Constantine ’10
Adam Constantine is currently a social media manager at Elon University, as well as being a former basketball player. With an upbeat and energetic demeanor, Constantine makes an ideal social media manager.
After four years playing overseas, he now uses his unique “dope” approach to storytelling for brands. An accomplished writer and speaker, he has taught both local organizations (LOs) and executive level executives (execs) how to leverage social media effectively for lead generation purposes by leading with their personal brand while using social media effectively for brand engagement and awareness purposes.
Early Life and Education
Constantine was born to a Roman family in Naissus, Moesia Superior (modern-day Serbia). He studied medicine at Europe’s first organized medical school – Salerno University – before entering Monte Cassino monastery and translating Arabic medical books into Latin.
As a young man, he became interested in philosophy and religious thought, leading him to study theology and biblical exegesis.
He became a Christian in 312 and set about spreading Christianity throughout his Empire, passing numerous laws in its name and founding several churches such as Hagia Sophia.
He also addressed Donatist schism, which was an issue for early Christians. Through letters written to those who had left, he encouraged those who had abandoned to return as soon as possible, making clear that any division between Christians would offend God and lead to divine punishment of Christians involved.
Adam Constantine ’10 built ACE Creatives from scratch into a seven-figure agency, but his career as a social media manager began long before. While an undergraduate at Elon, Adam participated in various student media organizations as a film critic for The Pendulum and an account executive with Live Oak Communications.
He remains passionate about telling stories through digital means, as evidenced by his recent joining Elon’s Office of University Communications to oversee its Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts while pioneering innovative ways for different departments and organizations across campus to use these tools for storytelling.
His expertise lies in real estate law, where he assists companies with the acquisition, development and financing of commercial real estate assets. He has represented clients in every aspect of real estate transactions from zoning/land use approval through construction, permanent loan funding and mezzanine debt arrangements.
Achievement and Honors

He was also instrumental in leading the Constantine Arts Council, which recently held its 7th annual Sassy Awards in honor of outstanding local stage performances.
