Ready. Set. Go!
Quick! Before you start planning your fraternity or sorority event, ask yourself these questions:
- What is the purpose of this event?
- What activities will this event have to fulfill its purpose?
- What is the event budget?
- What materials will be created and distributed to promote this event?
- Do I have a list of all of the UT Departments/Offices/Programs that need to be involved for approval and success of this event?
Now that you’ve answered the questions above, here are your next steps:
- Determine event date, time and location. Don’t forget to consider: religious holidays, cultural perspectives, athletic schedules, other campus events and weather.
- Reserve location for specific date and time.
- Determine event theme.
- Determine admission charge, if applicable.
- Determine entire event timeline from set-up to tear down.
- Coordinate all event details.(Security.Tents, tables, chairs, etc. rentals. Audio/visual needs. Electricity/water needs. Catering needs. Decorations according to theme.)
- Create and distribute all marketing materials in a timely fashion.Don’t forget! Marketing materials with a UT logo must be approved and stamped by the University Marketing & Communications Office in University Hall Room 2110.
- Determine your event Plan B, should anything go awry.
