"Deck the Arches" Decorating Competition

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 is once again hosting "Deck the Arches," the Christmas Archway Decorating Competition!

All student organizations and any other groups are invited to participate, so please fill out the form at before Friday, November 30. Late entries will not be guaranteed a space, so sign-up early! 

We are looking forward to seeing each organizations creativity and most definitely hope that this can be a fun outlet for you all to build community and bond as an organization and as a campus. Have fun with it!

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 Wednesday, December 5. 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 Tuesday, December 10 (or your organization will be fined). 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.
