The countdown has officially begun and we are days away until new students arrive on campus! As students pack up and prepare to move, we wanted them to have a little fun aside from all the logistics. For our final theme of the #spubound photo contest which launched on August 23, we wanted to see what SPU's incoming class of 2021 can't leave home without.

Incoming students showed us their prized possessions and we narrowed it down to the top six. You voted to choose the best photo, and you chose Sean's photo as the winner!

The #spubound photo contest is now over! Our new Falcons arrive on campus on September 8 and we can't wait to meet you all!

Voting ended at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, September 5.

All students who submitted a photo during the contest were entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. Samarth who participated in the Best Pet round is our raffle winner!
