student organizations participate in a window painting contest

This week Loyola students had the opportunity to participate in our Loyola Week Window Decorating Contest. The event showcased various organizations on campus while giving them a chance to earn $200 for their organization. Each had to incorporate the theme, “set the world on fire,” into their window paintings.

The Black Student Union received first place and the $200 reward, Alpha Kappa Psi came in second, and Alpha Kappa Alpha and Theta Phi Alpha tied for third. Shailyn Croom, Graphic Design and Public Relations Chair for BSU, discussed how they came up their idea. She said, “This year, our organization changed its logo to one that was very controversial, the raised fist, and wanted to take pride within it so we incorporated it into our window painting.”

The group took their new logo and used to theme to create their finished product. Croom said, “Combining the two allowed us to get our statement across, implanting a powerful message.”

All the organizations’ window paintings can be seen on the windows inside the Danna Center surrounding the “fishbowl”.
