Fall Orientation Activities Midway
The Activities Midway is the primary fall recruiting event for ASA groups. This year, the Fall Midway will be held on Friday, August 29th, from 3pm to 5pm.
Because space is limited, by signing up for a booth, you are committing to have it staffed the entire time. Please read the expectations below before signing up for a booth.
The Midway space and performance time application can be found here. Applications for Midway space and performance times are due by August 19, 2014 at 5PM EDT. We will release the allocations of space and performance times by August 25, 2014. We cannot guarantee all groups space, although we will do our best to accommodate as many groups as possible. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Spring Campus Preview Weekend Student Activities Midway
The CPW Activities Midway is similar to the Fall Activities Midway described below, except that it is smaller, occurs during Campus Preview Weekend in April, and is primarily targeted at prospective freshmen.
Event Details and Expectations
We have laid out the following expectations of groups for our Midways. We set these expectations to ensure that Midway space is used fairly and to help us re-assign space as it becomes available to groups on the waitlist.
The ASA Executive Board members reserve the right to remove groups and members from the Midway for any group's failure to comply with Midway rules and ASA Exec members' requests.
Sign-in and setup
- Your group must sign in with the ASA when you arrive at the Midway.
- Groups can start setup as early as 2:15pm.
- Groups must check in by 2:40pm. Groups that are late may be fined $25, and may forfeit their table if there is a waiting list.
- For the Orientation Midway, ASA early returns must check in in addition to their group(s) checking in.
- If your group can no longer attend and/or perform at the Midway, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance. Groups that cancel after that point may be fined $50.
- Groups that don't cancel by the time check-in starts will be fined up to $75.
- No external speakers - you may use laptop or other similarly quiet speakers. This is to address numerous extreme noise complaints, allow groups to be able to speak to interested individuals, and for performances to be heard. ASA Board members may ask you to reduce the volume or turn off sound on any speakers if it is causing problems for your neighbors or performances.
- Stay at/by your booth - no handing out flyers at the doorway, no blocking the entrance or aisles, etc.
- In order to keep walkways clear, groups are required to stay within armsí reach of their table at all points and may be fined up to $50 for non-compliance.
- If your booth is not staffed at any point during that 2 hour period, your group may be fined up to $25.
