Grand Marshal Week Event Registration 2016

Grand Marshal Week 2016

April 11, 2016 - April 15, 2016


    Grand Marshal Week is a campus tradition during which we hold elections for student government.  Every year we get Wednesday off of classes and celebrate GM Day.  As we have in the past, on GM Day we will host a barbeque and entertainment.  Traditionally, clubs and organizations on campus join us in celebrating throughout the week.  


    This GM Week, we plan to make use of the Student Union patio for tabling and events Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Similar to last year, we will provide tables and chairs for any organization that wishes to use them.  Tents and electricity will be available on a first come first serve basis.


    On Wednesday, we hope to host the BBQ outside, but the exact location has not yet been determined.  However, in the event of rain we will be moving to the Armory.  In either case we will provide tables and chairs and if we are outside we will also provide tents and electricity (as available).  


I highly encourage all of you to come out and join us in celebrating GM Week.  Please let us know if you are planning on hosting any event during GM Week by filling out the attached form.  If you are planning on hosting multiple events, please fill out the form for each event.  This will guarantee that your events will make it on to the GM Week calendar and that we will have space if you wish to use it.  


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to me at  I will do my best to assist you.  Here is a link to the form: Please fill out this form by March 11, 2016 and note that unless you SPECIFICALLY make arrangements with us with a request for something other than tent space, tables, chairs, or electricity, we will NOT provide it.
