Promoting your Club or Society
O Week is a fantastic time to recruit new members for your club or society. Most clubs know that they are able to have a booth at the expo, but did you know there are opportunities for clubs to put on demonstrations as well? Information regarding O Week 2014 will be posted around October. If you'd like further information before this time you can always email Campus Life.
Yak is your first port of call for all things media, run by UoN students, for UoN students. There is regular 'whats on' segments where you can submit your events for print or video promotion, email Yak at firstname.lastname@example.org (please allow inform us at least three weeks prior to your event).
You might have noticed the U's poster frames around Bar on the Hill and Shortland Building. If you'd like to see your club or society promoted in these spaces simply email your poster to Campus Life or drop into The Basement in the Shortland Building (under the stairs) with your posters at least a week in advance.
You can also put your posters on any of the student noticeboards around campus (be aware that the University has a Banner and Poster Procedure in place that you will need to comply with). Noticeboards in Bar on the Hill and Shortland Building are cleared every Friday and any posters not in frames or on noticeboards will be removed.
The U can provide you with a free booth inside Bar on the Hill or the Shortland Building. To lock in a date pop into the Glasshouse during office hours or email Campus Life. Booths have power if requested, a table, backing board and two chairs. You just provide pins and any posters or promo material, just like in O Week.
The U at UoN is a free smartphone app that is a student diary and also gives clubs the chance to put up info about their club and post club events. Contact Campus Life for further info and to get access to the App.
There are student noticeboards around the campus that you can put posters on including the one between Subway & Pinkies in the Shortland Building and those outside the Auchmuty Library and Hunter Building.
The U can help promote your Club or Society event on our facebook page. Simply email Campus Life with the details. If your event is at Bar on the Hill we can promote it on the Bar on the Hill page. If you haven't already, start your own facebook page for your Club or Society to boost numbers and keep everyone up to date.
