 1. Develop a Plan

All university events must first be registered and approved on CardinalSync.

 2. Get Money

Funds should be raised and transferred to your ASSU account prior to making any financial commitments.

3. Book Space

Most spaces are scheduled through the Registrar using CardinalSync. For a comprehensive listing see OSE venue sheets for low-cost spaces, auditoria, and performing arts spaces and more.
