It’s time to think about fall semester!

You might think we’re crazy, because looking outside today it’s hard to think that spring will ever really arrive and now we want you to skip right over summer and into fall. No, no, we’re not crazy–we’re just planners who plan ahead. Admittedly, way ahead. The student union is now taking reservations from student organizations for fall meetings and events.

Before you start thinking that we plan too far ahead, think about this: we host more than 5700 events and meetings each year. The student union is a busy place, so you can see why it’s important to secure your space sooner rather than later.

Now that we’ve convinced you to make your reservations, let us help you through the process. There are two ways to make your room request:

  1. Use the Virtual EMS online scheduling tool. It’s really pretty simple to use, just make sure you have your Star ID activated.
  2. Come to the Info Desk in the CMU and fill out a paper form. Info Desk hours are 9am-9pm Monday-Friday, 10am-9pm Saturday, and noon-9pm Sunday.

Whatever you’re planning, we can help! Our event services staff is ready and willing to help you find the right space for your meetings and events. Each staff person is knowledgeable about the building, room set-ups, and event logistics, so even if you aren’t sure where to begin, we can help!
