#URSuccess Contest Rules

The ultimate goal of Purdue University Residences is student success. We at UR want to see that success, so we’re holding our second annual #URSuccess contest, where residents capture themselves or others being successful in University Residences or around campus. The winners get sweet prizes, so it’s worth your time.

Last year’s winner was a YouTube video of a resident rounding up friends and going sledding at Slayter Hill. Second place was an RA’s Instagram photo of a diversity-themed bulletin board, and the third place entry was a tweeted photo of a jam session in someone’s room in Cary Quad. We saw a lot of cool hall programs and plenty of our awesome dining courts.

Posts can be funny, or sentimental, or artistic, or even just a selfie. Post your interpretation of University Residences success on social media with the hashtag #URSuccess and you’re in the contest.
