Jenna Medeiros ’18 is the winner of our Instagram contest for creatively decorated campus homes, and seniors Grace Mangigian and Sergio Fernandez are the runners up.

Jenna Medeiros’ room in Jones is the winner of the first ever #Haverhome competition

There are all kinds of residential halls here at Haverford. Some students live four-person apartments, some live in suites, others in singles. And thanks to the creativity, individual tastes, and ingenuity of Fords, no two rooms look alike. So in February we launched a month-long contest on Instagram to get a peek at how campus residents design and organize their space and to see how they’ve made their dorm a home. We had dozens of submissions (hashtagged Haverhome) of great-looking rooms, all of which showcased their denizens’ style, interests, and personal preferences.

It was hard to pick a winner, but the many sophisticated DIY projects Jenna Medeiros ’18 undertook (tufted velvet walls! a canopy bed! a fireplace mantel!) helped her triumph in the end.  Grace Mangigian’s cozy, cheerful room and Sergio Fernandez’s team- and school-spirited space also earned both seniors runners up titles.


All three winners earned Bed Bath & Beyond gift cards to further outfit their stylish spaces. Thanks to everyone who submitted!
