"On behalf of the Office of Student Development, I would like to thank all of the staff that participated in the office decorating contest," said David Mariscal, assistant Dean of Students. "In participating in this contest, you have demonstrated to the campus community that each of us has a responsibility and a role to play in building campus spirit."

Each office was judged by three University administrators who were looking for creativity/originality; the amount of work/attention to detail; and Bronc Spirit theme.

Participating in the contest this year were the following offices: Physics and Geology, Learning Assistance Center, University Writing Center, Counseling and Advisement Center, Student and Visitor Services, the University Library and the University Bookstore.
