Policies for Displays of all types at the Dining Commons
RECRUITING TABLES & "FAIRS" OUTSIDE THE DC
All non-Westmont organizations or campus departments wishing to utilize the two fixed recruiting tables must register with the Office of Life Planning, which coordinates visits and available space. A maximum of three non-student organizations are permitted at the DC each day. If authorized by Life Planning, a third table must be arranged with Event Services, and may not block emergency egress on the walkways. Contact Auxiliary Services if more information is needed. Events with more organizations require a "fair" setting on the lawn, which must be arranged through the Office of Life Planning in coordination with Event Services and Campus Scheduling. Signage must be freestanding and cannot block emergency egress.
No recruiters or campus staff are to set up displays inside the DC, with the exception of those ALREADY SCHEDULED OUTSIDE who need to move indoors due to rain.
All displaying organizations should also note the details at this link:
