Planning guidelines to support student events

Recognizing that student events and activities are an essential component of campus life, the Office of Student Experience has created a website for students to use as a reference when planning on-campus events.

Sarah Hebert, communications and events co-ordinator in the Office of Student Experience, notes that students often are excited about the idea of planning events but get overwhelmed with the policies and procedures they need to follow to host activities on campus.

“They are not sure where to start or who to contact.,” she says. “The information provided on the website is intended to help student groups plan and execute fun, entertaining, and well-attended events while minimizing the various risks associated with hosting an event.”

Information including an event planning guide, campus policies, and key contact information can all be found on the website.

Hebert encourages staff and faculty to direct students to this website as a resource for event planning.
