Fall Involvement Fair


The McKendree Involvement Fair is a festive event that provides student groups the opportunity to connect with students and highlight their organization to the McKendree community. A student group is most effective when the membership is large enough to support the group’s goals and represents McKendree’s diverse campus. Our goal is to help your group be the best it can be!

Date, Time, Place:

The Involvement Fair will be held on the grass just north of Holman Library on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Set up time is 10:00am. Rain (severe weather) date for the fair will be Wednesday, August 29 from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Please plan to be available for both the official date and the rain date.

McKendree RSOs and Departments/Offices

There is no cost for McKendree Departments and Registered Student Organizations to participate in the Involvement Fair. Please make sure that you plan to be in attendance for both days in the event of rain. The Office of Campus Activities will provide your group with:

· a table and two chairs

· a 8.5 x 11 sign marking your table

· You will be able to set up your table at 10am on Tuesday, August 28. Items must be taken down immediately at the conclusion of the event (2pm)

**Electricity is extremely limited. As you know, it can be very humid and hot, so having a portable, battery-powered fan is highly encouraged. Registration forms will be evaluated for any groups requesting electricity.

The Involvement Fair helps your group get new members! When you increase your membership, you increase your visibility and your energy on campus. New members could mean new ideas and fresh perspectives, as well as more energy to reach your current goals. Participation in the Involvement Fair also gives McKendree Departments and Offices additional exposure to our students.
