Student Leadership and Involvement

Event Planning

 Our RSO's host hundreds of events, large and small, during the academic year. These events allow organizations to engage with campus, strengthen bonds between members, and have fun! Here you will find some resources designed to guide you through the event planning process. It is important to remember that all RSO operations are subject to University Policy. Need help planning your next event? Email rso@mtu.edu for assistance!
