Office Decorating: Showing Orange Spirit All Over Campus!

This year we had 13 offices compete in the annual Office Decorating Conest - more than any other year! The judges were so impressed with all the hard work and effort that was put forth by those who participarted. From Lyman to University College, and even all the way to Skytop!, the Orange Spirit was out in full force for Homecoming!

In first place: Hospitality Management Program and Food Studies

This office realy put on a show for the judges complete with a tamed "tiger" who jumped through hoops as well as a full array of carnival food! There was a big top, clowns and even a strangman!

Honerable mentions: Carrier Dome Management Office

Office of Residence Life
ORL had fantastic custom graphics that incorporated their staff into the theme. The judges also appreciated the orange juggling!

Office of Human Resources

The treck out to South Campus was worth it to see the office who easily incorporated the biggest number of tamed tigers into their decor.
