The student organization fair is designed for new students and their families. It is one element of a two-day orientation at UNI that includes: registration for fall classes, an introduction to student services, and a variety of activities designed to facilitate the successful transition to college for new students. 

*The most important goal of the fair is to promote involvement on campus*


Each organization is provided a table approximately 6-ft long. 
Displays or other materials you wish to display cannot exceed the length of the table, nor can displays block walkways or aisles
Representatives should stay alongside their tables during the entire fair (Be mindful of the number of representatives you bring, due to space). Someone from each group must be present for the entire duration of the fair at every session. Failure to provide staffing for your table will result in your table being given to another organization for the remainder of the summer. 
Attire must be representative of the University or specific student organization
Representatives should support all of the organizations participating in the fair by encouraging students to explore a variety of options for campus involvement. 
Negative comments toward any student organization will not be tolerated
Materials and displays should be consistent with approved colors, logos, and themes of the University of Northern Iowa. Materials that are considered to be derogatory, defamatory, or otherwise of poor quality or taste will be removed from the fair at the discretion of the Student Organizations Coordinator. 
Representatives should not block heavy traffic areas


Scavenger Hunt: 

To encourage greater participation from students and parents, we will be conducting a scavenger hunt and awarding prizes to participants who obtain at least three signatures from representatives at the fair. It may be helpful to bring an organization or office stamp to simplify this process.
