6th Annual Best Dressed Room - About the Contest
The Office of Housing and Residence Life recently concluded it’s 6th annual Best Dressed Room Contest with a dessert reception held on October 8, 2013 for all participants entering the contest.
Participants decorated their rooms and were judged based on 5 judging criteria: style, creativity, attention to detail, best use of space, and overall impact. Entrants submitted photos of their room and hall winners were selected by the Coordinators for Residence Life. Winning rooms from each of the residence halls were then judged in person by students volunteers from the Department of Interior Architecture, and two grand prize winning rooms were selected - one from the apartments and suites, the other from traditional-style rooms.
In it’s 6th year of existence, the program had 196 student participants from 121 rooms. Rooms from all undergraduate residence halls were represented in the competition.
Prizes for the contest included random gifts valued at $50-$75 for each hall winner and grand prizes totalling approximately $400. This year, a Spartan Spirit Award was also selected in a facebook contest and that winner, along with another randomly drawn winner, each received a gift valued at approximately $200.
Housing and Residence Life would like to thank everyone who participated in this contest. Your efforts produced amazing results and you get to live in a room in which you have taken great pride in decorating. Congratulations to all of you!
