Almost Home Contest!

Almost Home Flyer 2017

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 November 10th!  Please include 2-3 pictures.


Each room entered must follow the guidelines:

  • All furniture must be legal as per the housing license, no furniture that is not California Code rated.
  • No painting/drawing on the walls.
  • Original furniture must be in the room and accounted for.
  • No blockage of any fire detecting devices.
  • No suite or recreation room furniture.


The judging will be based on:

  • Best use of space and furniture.
  • Creativity.
  • Neatness.
  • Appropriateness.
  • Overall appearance.

The judging panel will be announced at a later date.


There will be two winners.  We will have a winner for Best Room Design and Most School Spirit.  The winning rooms and residents will receive a $50 gift card to the bookstore.  The winning rooms will also be featured on our website.
