Information Sessions and Information Tables

Information Sessions

Due to classroom space availability, requested information sessions should be one hour.

Please see “Event Request Procedure” below to learn how to request an information session for your organization. It is highly recommended that the employer creates a flyer to help promote the event on Handshake while inviting students and to also share the flyer with the Academic and Career Engagement and Success (ACES) Center to help advertise the info session.

Information Tables

Employers can request an information table to advertise volunteer, internship, or job opportunities. This is a great way to promote opportunities to students in a strategic and highly-trafficked area on campus. Information tables can be requested for 2-3 hours on Monday-Thursday between the hours of 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. free of charge. A representative from ACES is required to accompany your table for free sponsorship.

If you would like to request your own event outside of these hours or time limits, you will have to submit your own request using the “Event Request for Non-University Clients” online form with the ACES Center. You will be responsible for covering the fee of such an event. Upon completion of the form, as staff member from Event Services will contact you regarding your request.

Please see “Event Request Procedure” below to learn how to request an information table for your organization.
