University Housing’s annual Wolf Den Challenge is back! Residents have the chance to win fun prizes and the opportunity to be showcased on the department’s social media channels. Prizes include gift cards, NC State apparel and more. Participants can submit one to three photos of their room or apartment living room.

There are four contest categories: Home Sweet Home, Wolfpack Pride, Best Living Room and People’s Choice. Residents may enter into as many categories as they wish as long as they agree to the Wolf Den Challenge Guidelines. Individuals may only receive one prize pack, but can win in both the bedroom and living room categories. You can find examples of past winners on the Wolf Den Challenge webpage

Home Sweet Home, Best Living Room and Wolfpack Pride winners will be decided by a panel of judges who will score the submissions based on designated criteria for each category. The Home Sweet Home category submissions will be evaluated based on use of space, use of color and reflection of personality. Show off what makes your space uniquely you. The Best Living Room category will be evaluated based on use of space and reflection of collective interests of the residents. Wolfpack Pride is evaluated based on how much your room reflects Wolfpack and Raleigh imagery and spirit. 

The People’s Choice category will be decided based on social media interactions. All of the People’s Choice rooms will be posted on University Housing’s Facebook page and Instagram stories. The room that gets the most combined likes between platforms by 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 20 will win.

The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15. Entries cannot be accepted or edited after that point. Students must read the rules, terms and conditions of the contest before entering. Winners will be announced by Friday, Sept. 29. Good luck, and happy decorating!
