What is Almost Home? 

Almost Home is a competition throughout the residence halls that is a way for students to show off how they have decorated their room to feel like home. Living away from home is a big deal and it is important for students to be able to show their creativity and feel like they have a place to call home.  We want to see all of your hard work!

How do I enter?

Students can enter the Almost Home competition by e-mailing photos of their room to the Office of Residence Life by October 18th!  Please include 2-3 pictures.
