Student help is also provided immediately following the event to assist with booth take-down and transporting items back to the shuttle.

Employers may also ship career fair materials in advance of the event, and should be received no sooner than Wednesday, September 13 and no later than Friday, September 15 (weekend deliveries will not be accepted). Please include your company name on the outside of your shipment. Once received, your materials will be placed at your booth prior to the event. Please send materials to:

If you wish to ship your items back to your facility from campus following the event, please provide your own shipping forms complete with pre-addressed labels. Your items will be shipped out from our Central Receiving department the following day.

*Please note, due to the change in venue, booths will not be separated by pipe and drape. We encourage you to limit the size and number of items you bring to the event, but do encourage the use of pull up banners with your organization name. If you will not be shipping your materials ahead of time, you will be responsible for transporting your materials via shuttle to the RecPlex, as curbside drop off is not available. (The shuttles will have under carriage storage for package transportation.)
