FALL in Love with I-House

Social Media Challenge - Fall 2018

This fall, we’re running a social media challenge where you, as residents, can share the different reasons to fall in love with I-House! Select submissions may be included in our I-House Times Newsletter, Stories website, blog, and our other public social media channels. Each week there will be a different topic with different prizes. Grand prizes: $50 Amazon Gift card and deluxe swag bag. Now is the time to get creative, and fall in love with I-House!

How to join the challenge:

  1. Sign up by filling out this brief form just one time during the fall semester.

  2. Check the schedule below for weekly topics so you can plan ahead.

  3. Submit posts with hashtag #ihouselove and by tagging @ihouseberkeley on Instagram or @berkeleyihouse on Facebook.

We welcome any level of participation, but only those who have submitted posts for at least two weekly challenges will be eligible for the grand prizes. The more you participate, the more chances you have to win!

The Communications jury will take into account the quality of the content and how many posts have you submitted.
