Recommended Event Formats

The following list has recommended programming models for student organizations to use while physical distancing requirements are in effect. This is not a comprehensive list as any event that can be done while meeting health and safety protocols is allowed.

Small in-person

These programs will be small in nature and typically targeted towards a specific student population or group. Examples of these kinds of programs include workshops, video game nights, and outdoor yoga.

Rotating shift

These programs provide the same content and/or experience to students in small groups right after one another and can be held inside or outside. Examples of these kinds of programs include paint nights, tie-dye, and DIY events that require instruction.

Large outdoor

These programs deliver content/or experiences to a large group simultaneously and only happen outside. Examples of these kinds of programs include “drive in” movies, the Activities Fair, and scavenger hunts.

Grab and go

These programs consist of pre-assembled kits that students can take to do on their own or with a group of friends. There is no designated event space except for where the kits are being distributed. Examples of these kinds of programs include make and take events, easy DIY kits, and stress relief kits.

Virtual delivery to small groups

These programs utilize Zoom or other platforms to provide widespread instructions or content to individuals, groups, or teams in predesignated locations. Examples of these kinds of programs include small group challenges, watch parties, and discussion groups for presenters.

All virtual

These programs utilize Zoom or other platforms to provide widespread programming to anyone. Examples of these kinds of programs include online video game tournaments, panels and presenters, and large group information sessions.
