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.Maddie Spade, Most School Spirit/Best Organized Room 2

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.
