    Employer Luncheon and Hospitality Area

    Lunch will be provided from noon - 2 p.m. in the Shepperson Suite, located adjacent to the ballroom. If possible, we ask that recruiters stagger their lunch so that each table has at least one representative available to talk with students


    Each organization will be provided one 6-foot table and tablecloth. We will not be able to provide special equipment such as TV monitors, slide projectors, VCRs or screens. If you request an electrical outlet for your display, please bring an extension cord.


    Due to space limitations, and as a courtesy to your neighbor, we ask that you either set your display on or behind your 6-foot table. Displays will not be permitted on either side of your table --- creating wings or extensions. We will ask that any display which obstructs the view of others be removed. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

    Your display must fit the following designated space:

    Tabletop dimensions = 6' x 2'
    Height restrictions for Tabletop Display = 5'
    Height restrictions for Floor Display = 8'

    Directions and Parking
