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!
In second place: Office of Instutional Research and Advancement
OIRA went with a jungle theme complete with a safari guide. Their attention to detail was very impressive, as always!
In third place: University College
The UC office had found lots of vintage circus posters that helped create the right feel. They were complete with a tamed tiger and a whip as well!
Honerable mentions: Carrier Dome Management Office
The Carrier Dome office created a mini Dome experience complete with a real working scoreboard and student section!
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.
The committee would like to thank everyone who participated in the contest - we can't wait to see what you come up with next year!
