The winning office suite will receive a Dining Services Snack Pack and a trophy that rotates annually between the winning offices.

This year, a People’s Choice Award has been added for those who want to show off their office on social media. Use #UMDHomecoming or tag @umdhomecoming when promoting Homecoming events.

Decorating takes place Oct. 2-6. People’s Choice photos must be submitted by noon Oct. 9.
