Room Decorating Contest

What's Your #UCRoomDrip?

Room Decorating Contest Deadline Extended to Sept. 10!

Everyone has their own drip. And it shows in what you wear, and definitely shows in how you decorate your room! We want to see your rooms and reward those with extraordinary #UCRoomDrip!

How it Works
