A Howdy Week Event is an approved event with specified learning or programmatic outcomes hosted in a reserved space with a designated start and end time. Tabling is not considered an event and will not be included in the Howdy Week Schedule of events. All approved Howdy Week Events will be listed in the Howdy Week Schedule.
To have your event listed in the Howdy Week Schedule, you must submit a Howdy Week Event proposal by May 13, 2019. The proposal will be reviewed by the Howdy Week Committee and the Office of New Student & Family Programs. Approved events will be notified on June 3rd and will have until July 9th to provide final event details and reservation confirmations.
Events Coordinators must coordinate all event logistics including space reservation, cost, insurance, waivers, contracts, and permits (if applicable).
Howdy Week Featured Events are long-standing, large-scale events that take place during Howdy Week. These events have happened for the the last 3 consecutive years and have an average documented attendance of at least 500. Featured Events are marketed by the Office of New Student & Family Programs and the Division of Student Affairs separate from the Howdy Week Schedule. It is in the best interest of your organization or department to choose an alternative time if it conflicts with a Featured Event.
Tabling is an opportunity for a University office, department, or registered Student Organization as defined by Student Activities to share more information on what you do and who you are.

Howdy Hour is a period of time dedicated to tabling to share more information on what you do and who you are with new and returning students.
