Preview: Services Fair Information and Table Request                         

Guidelines: Please ask each representative from your office or organization to read these guidelines carefully. 
  • Only ODU-affiliated offices and OSAL-recognized student organizations may attend the services fair. You must request a table in advance and receive approval from our office via email. 
  • As of March 18, 2013, you may request a table on our online form. You'll indicate which dates you'd like to attend Preview on the request form. Please note: At Freshman Preview, there are 18 tables for offices and 30 tables for student organizations. At Transfer and Midyear Preview, there are 15 tables for offices and 12 for student organizations. This means that space is limited. Please only register for dates when you know you will have a representative present.
  • If you reserve and later cannot attend, please send an email to preview@odu.edu as soon as possible. We will contact a group on the waiting list. After 2 absences without notifying us, your table will be forfeited to a group on the wait list.
  • 2 or more offices or organizations may sign up to share a table. If doing so, please indicate which groups are sharing on one electronic request.
  • You must use the tables that are provided by the Ted or Webb Center. Do not move them. Table selection at the event will be first come, first served. We ask that you arrive no more than 15 minutes before the services fair.
  • Please proceed directly to and from the services fair. Only Preview participants are allowed in the lunch area.
  • Please use clean versions of any music played at your table and keep it at a reasonable volume.
  • Please limit your table staffers to 2 per day.
  • Please carefully consider university policies, local, state, and federal laws when designing your display and selecting giveaways. Use your best judgment. Consider your audience of new students and parents. Our office reserves the right to ask you to remove materials deemed offensive.
  • Please remember that you are guests of the Preview program. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in representatives being asked to leave the services fair and/or cancellation of your table reservation. Thank you for your cooperation.

Student organizations & Offices: Due to the overwhelming interest in the Preview Services Fair, the Transfer and Freshman tables and waitlist are full. 

Please visit our website in November for Midyear Services Fair sign-ups.
