August 28, 2023
Dear Student Organization Leaders,
As we approach the start of the fall semester, we are writing with a few updates regarding the operations of your organization. 
Student Organizations Fair
As a reminder, the Student Organizations Fair is scheduled for September 8th, 2023 from 12pm-3pm on the Academic Quad. Each recognized organization must have completed their annual JumboLife Transition & OCL Registration Form via JumboLife to receive a table. If you're having trouble accessing the form, please follow the instructions outlined here. You can find additional information on how to prepare for the fair here
Scheduled Meetings & Events
Your organization’s ReserveTufts contact (as entered in your organization's registration form on JumboLife) will be permitted to book spaces on campus starting today at 9:30am EST. However, any space requested will not be approved until after September 5th, as this is the date when events and programs are permitted to begin.
Please keep these additional policies in mind as you begin planning:
  • Absolutely no events or meetings are to be held until the first day of classes, September 5th. New students should not be invited, or encouraged, to attend any student organization meeting or event during Undergraduate Orientation. 
  • All reservations in academic spaces between September 15th and September 18th will remain "Pending" until one business day prior to the reservation. This is to accommodate any shifting scheduling related to academic courses. 
  • Organizations must adhere to the posting policy.
  • In order to reserve space or host an event, organizations must be registered on JumboLife and submit event requests through the Event Registration Form

REMINDER: This training is for TCU-Funded Student Organizations only. This meeting is not required for Club Sports, Sub-Groups, Department-Sponsored Organizations, Graduate Student Council Organizations, Fraternities, Sororities, or non-TCU Funded Organizations. 
COVID-19 Reminders
Heading into the year, do your part to maintain a positive experience on campus and ensure the continued health, safety, and well-being of our university community. Keep yourself up-to-date with current University policies, guidelines, and recommendations
In planning events and meetings for your student organization, keep in mind: 
  • While masks are optional in indoor spaces, they are highly recommended as an effective strategy for slowing the spread of illness.
  • Stay home if you aren't feeling well. Individuals with flu-like symptoms should seek medical care. 
Thank you for your attention to these details. We look forward to welcoming you back in the coming days!
