Event Programming & Fundraising

Remember, students cannot sign contracts.  If you are looking to have an event that requires contracting services, work with your advisor to initiate an official university contract.  This process takes several weeks, so allow time for this!

As you are planning larger or risky events, remember to consider security needs. Work with Campus Security to determine need, and remember that only Campus Security can approve security companies to work for University events.
