Office Decorating Contest

Entries must be received by February 3, 2017.  Judging will take place during Homecoming Week, but you don’t have to wait until then to decorate.


University departments have the opportunity to purchase group tickets for the homecoming basketball game. All departments who purchase at least 10 tickets will be seated together and have the department name FEATURED ON VIDEO PANELS during the game.


Q: Isn’t homecoming ONLY for the alumni and students?

A:  Quite the contrary.  Homecoming is for the university.  It’s all about having pride for the university.  When you participate in homecoming or any other university activity, it raises your level of pride.  When you’re excited about being here it becomes infectious! Spread the happiness.

Q: As a faculty/staff member, what difference will it make if I’m participating in homecoming?  I mean, is there really a purpose?

A: Why wouldn’t you want to support something that supports the university spirit?  Any time you talk about the exciting things that happen on campus – whether it’s having a well-known speaker on campus,  participating in fun activities on campus, or telling students, staff members and your own family about the really cool things Mason’s doing truly makes an impact of how you perceive our campus.  It’s amazing what a little support will do for having pride in our institution.

Q: How can I or my department participate in homecoming?

A:  There are several ways you can participate.  You might want to sign-up to participate in the annual office decoration contest. You could post your photos or the schedule of events up on your office door. Or simply just talk about all the cool events that will take place during homecoming week – which is something we hope everyone would do! 🙂
