Diversity poster competition reaching deadline

The university’s Office of Housing & Residence Life is hosting a competition that will allow students to show what diversity means to the university, a university resident assistant said.

The winner of the second annual Diversity Poster Competition would have his or her poster displayed in residence halls, according to the website.

J.J. Moore, Herndon Hall resident assistant, said the purpose of the competition is to help students realize what diversity means to the university.

“It can be any interpretation of diversity on the TCU campus,” Moore said.

Moore said the office had received few entries as of Wednesday evening.

Posters would be judged on creativity, originality, appeal, expression of ideas and message by student affairs staff members, according to the office’s website.

Rolando Guerrero, Jr. won the contest last year, according to the website.

Entries are due to the Office of Housing & Residence Life, located in the basement of Samuelson Hall, by 5 p.m. Friday.
