How to Organize a Program Pub Night
Designate a main contact person
It is recommended that a main contact for pre-pub night organizing, the duration of your pub night and post pub night follow-up be designated. This person would be responsible for booking and should be present at the pub night.
Pick tentative dates
Meet at the beginning of the semester to pick your dates. It is recommended that you pick multiple tentative dates because the lodge gets booked fast. Pub dates are booked in the FSA offices.
At the meeting it will also be necessary to decide on a theme. Please be respectful in deciding your theme. All themes will be approved by the Auk’s Lodge Committee.
Choose Musical Entertainment
Auk’s Lodge provides a DJ service. If the DJ service is not required then it is your responsibility to organize a separate DJ or live band and equipment including speakers for the event.
