Submit the On Campus Event Request form at least five business days prior to the next scheduled SGA Senate meeting. Event approvals occur during SGA Senate meetings. Your event request must be on the SGA Senate meetings agenda to be considered for approval. Plan to attend the meeting where your event is scheduled for approval in order to answer any questions that the board may have.
