Information for RSOs & Campus Departments
Before submitting a registration form, please note the following information which includes major changes to this spring’s event:
- At this time, in the event of inclement weather, the event will take place at the same day and time; however, it will move completely indoors within the Oglesby Union.
- Due to this, there will be major space limitations. However, as always, registration is on a first come, first serve basis based off of available table spaces.
- Due to these space limitations, departments and departmental affiliates will not be permitted to table at this particular fair. However, this does not mean that departments and departmental affiliates will not be able to in future fairs.
- Additionally, there will only be one window to register for this fair: November 28, 2017-January 2, 2018.
- Please keep in mind that submitting this registration form does not automatically guarantee your organization a spot in the fair. Registration forms are processed in the order in which they are received based off of the date and time stamp.
- RSOs must be currently active and in good standing with the Student Activities office in order to register and participate – meaning you must have obtained recognized status for 2017-2018.
