Occidental Orientation Participation
Occidental College asked us to share the information below:
As a part of this year’s schedule, we are bringing back the Student Services & Community Fair on Friday, August 25, from 9 am – 11 am. Participation in this year’s fair will be FREE to local business.
If you are interested in participating, please respond to this email as soon as possible and no later than Monday, July 31st. We have set aside 10 tables for community businesses and organizations, which are available on a first come, first served basis.
Each year students and families are given a welcome bag with swag from campus offices and local businesses. As we are working to reduce paper usage and our carbon footprint; we invite you to email digital copies (either PDF or JPG) of menus, flyer, coupons, etc. to email@example.com as soon as possible and by Sunday, July 16 so they can be added to the google drive (last year’s can be viewed here); be sure to put “(Company Name) Welcome Bag Flyer” as the subject line to assure it makes it into the google drive.
We will still collect functional/useful pieces of swag/give-a-ways/promotional items that advertise your business, such as first aid kits, pens, pencils, planners, fridge magnets, key chains, detergent samples, security whistles, sunglasses, cups, chapstick, reusable water bottles, etc.
We ask that all SWAG feature family inclusive language, using terms like “Family” or “Student” instead of the more gendered or exclusive terms such as “Parent, Mom, Dad, Child, etc.” If you have questions about the whys, hows, or whats of inclusive language, please let me know or check out this google drive of resources.If you would like to contribute to both the student and family bags, we would need 1115 individual items. Or, you are welcome to only contribute to the student bags (615 items) or family bags (500).Promotional items are due by 5 pm on Monday, August 14 to the Office of Student Life, JSC 102 (building #15 on the campus map); please be sure to clearly mark which bags your items are intended for (student vs. family).
In order to save your time and resources, it is probably not necessary to contribute to the welcome bags in addition to attending the fair but you are still welcome to do both.
During Orientation, new students have the opportunity to win prizes. If your business would like to donate gift cards or merchandise to be given away as prizes, please reply to this email with what you have in mind by Monday, July 31st. All donations will need to be delivered to campus by Monday, August 14.
