Theme parties l.jpg
Theme Parties

    For ALL of these reasons, we encourage student organizations to engage in more imaginative and feasible alternatives to these activities.

  • If you will be providing alcohol make sure the facility is authorized to serve alcohol

  • Use a third party vendor or wristbands to manage alcohol


The event planner s l.jpg
The Event Planner(s) “Slave” Auction

  • Student organization events can be quite complex to manage (budgets, schedules, seating arrangements, training for volunteers, etc.).

  • Select an officer, other organization member, or committee/team to take the lead (i.e., the event planners).

  • Qualities of good event planners (or event planning teams) include:

    • experience within the organization;

    • excellent organizational, communication and time management skills;

    • ability to handle stressful, fast-paced situations; and

    • passion and a strategic vision.

  • A member of your executive team – may be a new officer position that you create or it may be a responsibility added to an existing officer position.

  • Serves as the point of contact for your organization on risk management issues, but does NOT need to be a risk management “expert”.

  • This officer must be an active member of your executive team with the recognition and authority over risk management issues for your organization.
