5 Tips for the Optimal #ROTY15 Submission

#ROTY15 just has ten days left and we know you've been toying with the idea of submitting a photo collage of your room.  Either you (or maybe your mom or a friend) worked hard to come up with the perfect coordination and style.  Long hours on Pinterest, the Internet or the world around you has served as inspiration for your amazing set up.  Now come on, we don't mind a casual humble brag especially when it means first pick of all available living spaces for the next academic year (2016-17) and a generous gift basket!


5 tips for an Optimal #ROTY15 Submission






1. Find the best lighting to show off your decorations.

Set the mood with your additional indoor lightning or flip the switch on for all the bulbs to show off the colors and patterns! This will help to maximize the look and feel in your photo collage. 




2. Tidy up.

Make sure to tuck away any loose dirty clothes or papers you have lying on your desk!  A tidy space is naturally pleasing to the eye.  





3. Show off your style.

Incorporate you (and your roommate's) personality! Including fake or fresh flowers/plants, personal photos/paintings, and more to decorate your space can make a residence hall room look more like a home.

4. Don't violate policy.

Take a quick look over our community guide to ensure any new decorations or appliances you wish to bring in your residence hall room are in compliance with our policies







5. Show off what makes your space unique.
Don't include a photo of a bare space or empty area - show off the hard work and careful coordination you did in even just one photo submission.  It's not necessary to use all five photos in the collage if more can be said with two or three—that way the voters get the best view of your space.





We look forward to seeing your #ROTY15 submissions in the next 10 days!  It's important to follow the rules and stay up to date with the timeline in order to be eligible to win.  Tag us in a photo collage of up to five photos on Instagram (@ugahousing and using #ROTY15) OR email in your photo collage to housinguga@gmail.com if your Instagram account is not public or you do not have an Instagram account.

Overview of the timeline: entries are due by October 1 at 5 p.m. with online voting taking place from October 9-October 16 at 5 p.m.  Winners will be announced the evening of October 16 with a celebration party for all participants on October 21.

Good luck to all our residents!
