What is Sparticipation?

A student involvement fair where student organizations, living unit groups, and major governing groups meet new and returning students to inform them about their organization’s purpose and events.

  • An opportunity to recruit new members, while displaying literature, awards, and highlights of the organization.


  • Registration/Check-in begins at 2:30 p.m.

Where and when is Sparticipation 2019?

  • WHERE: Cherry Lane Field (the field located on the corner of Shaw Lane & Harrison Rd.) Event rain location will be the Breslin Student Events Center & Munn Ice Arena 
  • WHEN: Tuesday, August 27, 2019 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Check-in time is from 2:30-4:30 p.m.

How do we reserve a table?

  • An organization must be an active student group for the 2018-2019 academic year in order to participate.
  • Each participating organization must complete the registration form (under Quick Links on the home page of this site) to be assigned a display booth (table and table cloth).
  • There are no fees for registered student organizations to receive a booth. However, booths are assigned on a first come basis.

Will my organization be able to set up early?

  • Yes! Set up time is between 2:30-4:30 p.m. the day of the event.
  • Booth assignment will be given out at check-in at the Department of Student Life tent located TBA, (look for the “Department of Student Life” banner).
  • Any booths not staffed by 4:30 p.m. will be forfeited and given to an organization on the waiting list.
  • Organizations occupying booths are asked to pick up the trash in their booth’s vicinity at the end of the event or before the members leave the event. The trash bag should be placed in or near a trash bin. Please fold the table cloth and leave it on the table; THEY DO NOT BELONG IN THE TRASH!
