With its homemade stock, broomsticks, skulls and other props, Northwest's Office of Information Technology took first place in the University's annual Homecoming office decorating contest for 2010.  The theme for this year's Homecoming is a Blast from the Past and Information Technology took us back to the past in creepy, good style. 

Information Technology staff members dressed their office in a witchcraft theme inspired by the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Wanted posters with the descriptions of Fort Hays State University football players hung on the office's walls, and staff members wore period costumes. Bars on the office's windows helped transform it into the Salem Village Jail.

"The Office of Information Technology's decorations definitely stood out," said Brittany Davis, special events and marketing graduate assistant in the Office of Campus Activities. "The various workers dressed appropriately for the era and gave a great performance using the homemade stocks. Overall, the office was very entertaining and involved with the office decorating contest, and it was a blast to see them having fun."

The Office of Student Affairs was awarded second place, and the University Wellness Center took third place.
