Christmas Archway Decorating Competition 2017

Deck the Arches! It's Christmas at CBU!

Christmas is just around the corner, which means it's time to get festive!  To celebrate, the CBU Student Government Association is once again hosting "Deck the Arches," the Christmas Archway Decorating Competition!

This year, you'll be assigned an archway (that's two columns and the space in-between) near Nolan Hall, and will have the opportunity to make it as festive, interesting, or as exciting as you'd like! Cash prizes will be given for the top three archways.

All organizations, academic departments, school, programs, cohorts, and any other groups are invited to participate, so please fill out the form below before Friday December 1. Late entries will not be guaranteed a space, so sign-up early!

Things to remember, if you compete

  • If you choose to include decorations that require power (lights, etc.), your team is responsible with coordinating with CBU Maintenance staff to ensure proper installation and safety protocols are followed.
  • Archways will be judged on Thursday, December 7. Winners will be announced at the CBU Christmas Celebration that evening. At least one member from the winning team must be present.
  • Archway decorations must be removed on or before Friday, December 15. Each organization is responsible for returning their archway to its original state following the competition.
  • Content must be tasteful, and is subject to removal at the discretion of the Office of Student Life at any time.
