Publicity

Over the years we have gotten questions about how we inform students about CONNECT events.  Below is a list of ways in which NSPFO publicizes CONNECT to new students:

  • Talked about throughout START
  • Mailer at the beginning of September
  • E-newsletter sent the week before move-in
  • Website: connect.oregonstate.edu
  • CONNECT App (through google play and Itunes), we encourage students to download at START
  • Large daily printed schedules that are put up in the MU, Dixon and Dining Centers
  • Daily electronic schedules sent to campus (this is an internal document and new this year)
  • We do not produce printed schedules for students; because we found that events are ever changing, adjusting and being added and cancelled and usually whatever was printed was out of date by the time CONNECT arrived. 


Event Planning Resources

Beaver Tips, provided by the Student Events and Activities Office has some helpful resrouces for programming on campus.
