How do we plan an event?
Event planning starts at your meetings. Someone brings an idea and the group decides whether to move forward with it or not. If the group does want to move forward, then begin discussing WHEN and WHERE to host the event, WHO you want/expect to attend, WHAT the event will be, and WHY you're having the event. Once you've answered those questions, reserve your space, place any food order(s), and order any other event supplies you'll need in advance of the big day!
How do we reserve space?
If you want space for a one-time meeting or event, or to do tabling in the Breezeway, fill out our online Room Reservation Form. OSL staff will review the information and work with Events Management to secure a space. Once a space is identified, you'll fill out a Meeting Arrangements Form to provide final details and confirm the space.
How do we order food?
Come get a Food Order Form from Student Life. Visit the cafeteria manager to discuss exactly what you'd like and how much it will cost, then bring the signed Food Order Form back to Student Life - we'll take it form there!
How do we order supplies/decorations/giveaways/etc.?
Complete purchasing procedures are covered with RSO presidents and treasurers during budget training. Remember that ordering directly through KCC is best, whenever possible. Reimbursements for expenses are limited to $100 for students, and we CANNOT reimburse for any purchases made online. Review your budget training information, and visit or email us with any questions.
Can we go on a trip?
You can! RSO travel must be approved in advance. The Trip Approval Packet is available in our office, and we'll help you through it if you need one.
