The Office of Events Management earned 59 out of a possible 60 points in the office decorating contest to move into first place in the Homecoming Office Spirit Competition. Alumni Affairs finished a close second with 58 points, and University Relations is in third place with 56 points. The Mathematical Sciences Department, the only academic unit that participated in the event, earned 55 points. There are still four more competitions remaining: Purge the Purple clothing drive, spirit song contest, banner competition, and caught with Mason spirit.

Caught with Mason Spirit brings a taste of Mardi Gras to the university as Homecoming Committee members and select students reward faculty and staff who have exhibited Mason Spirit with strings of Mardi Gras beads. Mason Spirit includes everything from wearing George Mason paraphernalia to showing pride and enthusiasm when you speak of the university. The following individuals were caught with Mason spirit this week: Bobbie Fuller (twice), Mary Lee May, Hannah O’Brien, and Colleen Kearney Rich of University Relations; Christine Amaya, Ann Morley, Michelle Richardson, and Robert Sachs of the Mathematical Sciences Department; Kathleen Kehoe, Una Murphy, and Zavin Smith of the Development Office; Stacey Remick-Simkins and Monica Hall of the English Department; Carole Richardson of Alumni Affairs; Gwen Brown of the Financial Aid Office; Lynn Leavitt of the Center for Service and Leadership; Gilberto Guerrero of the Johnson Center and Student Union Operations; April Honyara of the Bistro; and Jamilla Thompson of the Psychology Department.
