Dear Campus Departments:

Homecoming 2016 will be here before you know it. The Department of Student Life would like to invite your campus department to participate in the 2016 Office Decorating Contest. The Deadline to apply for the Homecoming Office Decorating Competition is Friday, September 30, 2016.

The 2016 Office Decorating Contest is one of many events taking place during Homecoming Week. Each participating campus department will be asked to decorate their office to compliment this year’s theme of “Rout the RedHawks”. Office decorating must be completed by noon on Monday, October 3, 2016. All offices must abide by the safety rules set forth by The University of Akron, as well as, all fire and safety codes. Departments may utilize supplies they currently have or purchase supplies (not to exceed $100 of your own expenses).

The offices will be judged on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme, artistic design, and neatness. Judging will take place between October 3rd and October 6th. The first, second and third place offices will be announced at the Homecoming football game and in the October 10th and 11th Email Digest. In addition, first, second, and third place prizes will be awarded to the winning offices.

Good Luck!

The Department of Student Life
