Is your room amazing? Show it off in our Best Room on Campus Contest!
Our annual Best Room on Campus Contest is your chance to show off the cozy center of your Cyclone experience – your room! Need some inspiration? Check out a few favorites from last year here.
Entering is easy – here’s what you need to do:
- Make sure your room looks fabulous! Clean up and make your bed. You’ll also want to pay attention to the photo angle and lighting.
- Fill out this form by October 14.
- Get ready to vote!
Entries are submitted through October 14. From there, the finalists are chosen by our judges and will go head-to-head in pool voting. One winner from each pool will advance to the finals held via an Instagram story poll.
Here’s how the schedule shakes out:
- Now – October 14: Entries can be submitted using this form
- Oct. 19 and 20, Lancelot Pool: half of the finalists will be in this pool. An electronic voting form will be e-mailed to all on-campus residents and will also be available here.
- Oct. 21 and 22, Elaine Pool: The other half of the finalists will be in this pool. An electronic voting form will be e-mailed to all on-campus residents and will also be available here.
- Oct. 27: The winner from each pool will face off in an Instagram story poll on our Instagram account. The poll will go up at noon on Tuesday, Oct. 27, and be available for 24 hours. Whoever wins the poll will win the grand prize!
