Starting week (4 weeks out)

  1. Request program space from the Reservations Office. Browse available rooms to find the best one for your event.
  2. Once you receive the reservation number, complete the On-Campus Event Form and turn it in to Student Activities along with any other necessary paperwork.
  3. Four weeks before the performance, secure performance rights for the scores or script and pay for them with a purchase order through Student Activities.
    • Your group must secure rights before you can perform the piece or pieces. Any performance without obtaining rights prior to the show is subject to cancellation.
    • If performance rights are waived for your group, make sure Student Activities has written confirmation on file prior to the performance.
  4. Set up a rehearsal schedule with your performers. Reserve space for your practice sessions with the Reservations Office.
  5. Fill out ISRs for Facilities Management & Planning (FM&P)—including an electrician if using Morse Auditorium or the GSU—or speak to an activities consultant about potential FM&P needs.
  6. Contact Student Production Services (SPS) to request your A/V needs.  Complete an ISR once you receive the quote.
  7. A Student Activities staff member will determine if will need BUPD or added security.
  8. For ticket sales, use Eventbrite, set up through the Student Activities Business Office (SABO). *If your music will be performed at any athletic facility, paper tickets must be sold through Activities Information or through your organization using a cash bag.
