Hang'em out to dry

Enrollment services employees got into the homecoming spirit this week by decking out their offices in all things cardinal and gold. The clever staff hung Iowa State T-shirts on clotheslines strung across walls and desks to emphasize their theme, "Hang'em out to dry," referring to the Texas A&M Aggies, the Cyclones' football foe for Saturday's homecoming game. Kick-off is at 2:30 p.m. in Jack Trice Stadium.

Staff in the General Services Building also got into a "Cyclone State of Mind" by posting sheets of cardinal and gold paper (and a few two-dimensional Cyclone fans) in the building's windows for dramatic impact.

The Student Alumni Leadership Council (SALC) resurrected the homecoming office-decorating contest this year after a brief hiatus. About 20 departments are participating. Judging began on Monday and will continue throughout the week. Contest winners will be announced online Friday. Photos by Bob Elbert.
