Rules for Involvement Fair Participation

  1. Eligibility and representation:  Only UTA departments and registered student organizations (in good/active standing) may participate in the involvement fair.  As the focus of this is involvement opportunities, vendors are not generally permitted at the fair. The name of the organization or department under which the reservation was made must be conspicuously displayed. Misrepresentation of your organization or unauthorized solicitation on behalf of other entities is prohibited.
  2. Attire:  Organizational or UTA spirit wear is encouraged! Please dress appropriately and do not wear items representing other institutions.
  3. Check-in:  Check in will begin for at designated times (see below); you must be properly checked in to claim your table. Groups should be checked-in at least 10 minutes before the doors open to orientation students and have their tables set up prior to the start of the fair.  Tables which have not been checked in or set up may be given away to walk-up groups waiting for a table.
  4. Limit on members present:  We prefer that no more than two individuals be present to staff your table to ensure that our space does not become overcrowded and is accessible to all in attendance. If we deem that the space is too crowded, we reserve the right to ask excessive organizational members to leave the space. You must contain your promotional activities to the space immediately around your table.
  5. Electricity:  Access to a standard electrical outlet is available for a limited number of groups and is available on the sign-up.  If you are requesting power it is advisable that you arrive early to claim your table and have a back-up plan in the event that power is unavailable on the day of the event.
  6. Use of Sound:  Amplified sound including audio/video is allowed to be played at your table; however, please be courteous to your neighbors by keeping the volume level and content of your song choices respectful to the general audience.  People at adjacent tables must be able to carry on a conversation at normal levels without being distracted. Instruments may be used for display purposes but they may not be played. The Orientation or Student Activities and Organizations staff have the right to turn off your music at any time.
  7. Update MavOrgs (organizations):  Prior to the Involvement Fairs, student organizations should update their MavOrgs page (e.g., information, officer roster, contacts and photos).
  8. Compliance with Rules:  Failure to comply with any of these rules will result in a verbal warning from staff; if the situation is not remedied to the satisfaction of the event staff, your group may lose privileges of attending the Involvement Fairs.
