Rue’s Office Claims Prize as Tritons Get Gold

    Complete with crown and trident, Vice Chancellor of Student
    Affairs Penny Rue led her office to a first-place victory in UCSD’s inaugural
    Spirit Week office-decorating contest, embodying a week of blue-and-gold spirit
    that seemed to permeate the entire campus.

    Upon entering Rue’s office, judges crossed a barrier of
    butcher paper that proclaimed, “We’ve got spirit, yes, we do, if you’ve got
    spirit, run on through.” The UCSD fight song prefaced the recitation of a poem
    about Triton spirit that Rue authored. Everyone in the office was garbed with
    matching crowns and handmade tridents, and balloons and streamers completed
    what would prove to be an award-winning display.

    Thirty departments across campus participated in the
    contest, and after last week’s overwhelming success, Assistant Vice Chancellor
    of Student Life Gary Ratcliff said that he is already planning for next year.
