Events in the EPS include general events, runs/walks, and tabling. In addition to events, this system allows you to submit a request to serve alcoholic beverages, light Century Tower and to display temporary advertising (e.g., banners, yard signs, etc.) on campus.

    Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) wishing to host an event should submit requests through the Office of Event Services.
