All tables must be returned to the designated check-out location for your
section. Any member of your organization may check-out by returning your
table. Failure to return your table will mean forfeiture of your
organization’s opportunity to participate in the Student Involvement Fair
in the future.

Your table will be in the Student Organization section.


We encourage you to walk to the Oval, but if you must drive, you should use
the Ohio Union South Parking Garage (1759 N. High Street).  You are
responsible for the hourly rate to park in the garage. Cars parked or
stopped in a fire lane will be ticketed. Please be advised that normal
campus parking rules apply the day of the Student Involvement Fair.
Absolutely no vehicles are permitted in the registration area or on the
Oval without prior permission.

the French Field House.  If the rain plan has to be utilized, groups will

If the rain location is utilized, we will not be able to accommodate all
tables due to space restrictions. Your participation status will be sent
out via email.

Items to consider before the Student Involvement Fair:

   - Student organizations should be sure to make copies and posters in the
   Resource Room as early as possible. It will be very busy the day of the
   Involvement Fair. There will also be a limit of 150 copies for Student
   Involvement Fair related items. The Resource Room hours will be:

Thursday, August 21st 9:00AM-6:00PM, Friday, August 22nd 9:00AM-8:00PM,
Saturday, August 23rd 10:45AM-8:00PM and Sunday, August 24th 10:45AM until

   - It is important to read the Oval rules and regulations at:
   If Oval rules are broken, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the
   Student Involvement Fair and you may be responsible for any resulting
   damage to the grounds.
   - Please read the Food Safety Guidelines at
   Only prepackaged baked goods, candy, etc. may be given out.  No homemade
   food items may be given out at the Involvement Fair. In addition, only
   Coca-Cola brand beverages may be distributed on campus.

Here are some extra tips to make your experience at the Student Involvement
Fair great for everyone:

   - Table section assignments are final. We will have volunteers checking
   each section to enforce this.
   - The groups that get the most attention at their table are fun,
   interactive and aesthetically pleasing – giveaways or stand up displays
   catch attention. The better your display, the more students you’ll likely
   get to sign up with your organization!
   - Due to space restrictions around your table area, we strongly
   encourage limiting the number of people representing your organization at
   your table.
   - We encourage you to maximize your technological resources and limit
   paper waste.
   - Please note we reserve the right to ask groups to leave the Student
   Involvement Fair or remove items from their table.
   - After the Student Involvement Fair, please return your chairs to the
   check-in area and clean up your area. Additional trash and recycling
   receptacles will be located around the Oval.

Thank you again for your involvement! If you have any questions leading up
to the Student Involvement Fair, please email sifair at osu.edu or call
