DANVILLE, KY—The votes have been counted—more than 400 of them, in fact. The people have spoken: the coolest room on the Centre College campus belongs to (drum roll, please) … junior Jeremy Ware of Corbin, Ky.
Ware, in his second year winning the contest, has turned his Bingham Hall room into a tropical paradise. Complete with astroturf carpet, bamboo walls, a jib sail on the ceiling, grass skirting accenting the furniture, and a variety of personal tropical accents, his home away from home combines self-expression and functionality.
Ware will receive a $100 Target gift card.
The runners-up, Dary Picken and Trey Janes, Kate Clemons and Kate Smiley, Danielle Dodson and Lauren Fredericksen, and Erin Menard and Casey Yeakel, will receive gift certificates.Centre's Communications Office photographed and judged a wide variety rooms for the contest on the basis of color, creativity, decorations, theme and overall look. The contest committee selected the five finalists, and online voters determined the winner.
