Are you thinking of hiring a photographer for your next event? Consider these tips for how to make your photographs count.
·Don’t skip the photographs in the interest of saving money. They may be very useful for publicity purposes at a later date, or for annual reports, newsletters and releases, etc.
·Think about what photographs you need in advance. For many events it is possible to hire a photographer for an hour or two to get the shots you need. It is often not necessary for the photographer to stay for the whole event. Keep in mind that a photographer can be present at an event for an hour or and deliver photos that make it look like s/he were there the whole time. Not so with video.
·Be very specific about what shots you need and in what format (digital, prints, etc.) you need them.
Are you bored and want something to do, but the thought of shoveling out your car to go downtown is just too much? Well why not get your friends together and head over to the Rec Center in Campus Center for a night of foosball, billiards, ping pong and other games?!
The Rec Center (located on the first floor of the Campus Center (Phillips Hall), around the corner from the Food Court) is open Monday-Friday 12:00 noon – 10:30 pm.
NOTE: This area is also available for reservations for groups and organizations. Party packages are available. Contact the Campus Center and Event Services Office (274-3313) for further details.
Are you coming or not? What does RSVP mean and why is it important to events?
The term RSVP comes from the French expression "Répondez s'il vous plaît," meaning "please respond." If RSVP is written on an invitation it means the invited guest must tell the host whether or not they plan to attend the party. It does not mean to respond only if you're coming, and it does not mean respond only if you're not coming (the expression "regrets only" is reserved for that instance). It means the host needs a definite head count for the planned event, and needs it by the date specified on the invitation.
