Via

Eat and Greet

We are looking forward to another exciting summer at SXU, planning for the arrival of new students and parents who will participate in Via summer orientation. Please note the dates for this summer's programs.

Via 2020 Session Dates

All departments, offices and programs are invited to help introduce new students and their families to their services and offerings at the Eat and Greet student information fair. Eat and Greet takes place in the SXU Diner and Atrium on the followings days and times from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. during each of the dates listed above.

At Eat and Greet, tables will be set around the perimeter of the Diner, Atrium and other eating spaces; food tables will be spaced throughout with easy-to-eat fair-type foods. Use this time to get to know students, inform them of your services and recruit them to participate in your programs! Please feel free to provide any handouts or promotional materials. This event has been well-received by students in the past.

Tables may be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. The table you pick using the form below will be the table that you have for all Via sessions. This form should be completed no later than Friday, May 15, 2020. If you do not register, you risk not having a table (or table sign) or receiving a random table assignment from tables that have not yet been claimed by other departments.

Please note: Table spaces will be shared. Units should plan for as little as two to three feet of table space. Please view the Via Eat and Greet Diagram (PDF). As we did last year, we will have an incentive to encourage students to visit more tables. We will provide you with tickets to give to each student who visits your table. Please give each student one ticket for having a meaningful interaction at your table (e.g., more than just grabbing a flyer). Information about this incentive and the tickets will be pre-placed on your table.

If you have materials you will be handing out during sessions 2 and 4 that you'd like to translate into Spanish, please send them to urprojects@sxu.edu. The service will take about 2 weeks and will be charged to your office/department.

More Information and Registration

The registration form will be available soon. Feel free to contact Ali Zaharris at 773-298-3974, Karen Salgado at 773-298-3123 if there are any questions.
