Main Events vs. Other Events
SPU events are defined by two categories — “Main Events” and “Other Events”. They are co-curricular, educational, and social programs that enhance and promote the University’s academic and community environment. Main events are given priority during the autumn, winter, and spring academic quarters.
Main events are reoccurring events that support the broader SPU mission, as determined by the President’s Cabinet.
- Examples: Homecoming, Group, Faculty Dinner, Board of Trustees meetings.
Other events are those that fit into the broader description of SPU events; they are primarily designed for, and attended by, SPU students, faculty, staff, and their guests; and/or, they are primarily funded by SPU dollars.
- These events are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis after SPU main events are scheduled.
