It's a noisy world out there! And, if you find yourself trying to promote your organization, product, or service, you will need to have a strategy. People are flooded with an average of 5,000 advertising messages per day and subscribe to the "rule of 7"- needing to hear the advertiser's message at least 7 times before making a decision. Join this breakout session to learn ways you can promote your events, programs, and achieve consistent branding with advertising, press coverage, and social media.

Presence Software Training (Offered ONLY during Breakout Session 2)
Chapman 040
Student Involvement is excited to announce the new software, Presence. Presence will allow the student body (as well as student organization leaders) to see the meeting times and locations of all student organizations, create forms and polls within the system, swipe people into events, and keep a student organization roster. Want to learn more or need a refresher? Then this is the session for you!

T-SPACE Training

T-SPACE (Trinity-Scheduling, Planning And Calendaring Events) is a web-based reservation system for University facilities (indoor and outdoor). T-SPACE training is required in order for student organizations to reserve campus space. T-SPACE training is now open and can be completed anytime during the academic year, though it is highly encouraged to complete in January when new officers have transition in the student organization.

Only one representative of each organization may receive reservation privileged. After successfully passing the quiz, the representative is issued a password that provides access to T-SPACE. Outgoing T-SPACE coordinators should continue to make reservations until new officers receive an updated login and password. Contact Student Involvement for more information.
