In September, the Office of Housing, Residential Living, and
Dining holds a “Best Dressed Room Contest” for on-campus students at IUP. Now in its third year, the contest continues
to gain popularity, with 35 students entering to show off their decorating skills.
Students’ rooms went on display on OHRLD’s Facebook page,
and the public voted to pick their favorite.
Voting was heated, amassing 2,199 “likes.” In the end, the top rooms went on to a panel
of judges made up of OHRLD’s Residence Hall Directors.
The results are in, and the winners have been chosen.
Gaining over 146 Facebook “likes,” winner of “Most School Spirit/Best Organized
Room” goes to Maddie Spade of Delaney Hall.
This year’s “Most Creative Room” belongs to Kaitlin Mitchell
of Wallwork Hall.
And this year’s “Best Overall Room” goes to Katherine
Tonelli, also of Wallwork Hall.
OHRLD would like to thank everyone who participated in the
contest either by entering their room, voting online, or sitting on the judging
panel. We are incredibly proud of the
unique rooms that awe us every year and look forward to what next year will
bring. Keep your eyes open for a special
post coming out this summer with tips from this year’s winner, Katherine, on
how to decorate your residence hall room on a budget.
