MainStage to take place Aug. 26
Students interested in learning more about campus clubs and organizations can attend the MainStage event on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 5-8 p.m. in parking lot 62, located between Rose Pond and Kelly/Shorts Stadium.
MainStage is a free annual event that aims to introduce new students to student organizations across Central Michigan University's campus. In addition to space designated for local and student organizations, the event will have live music, games and carnival rides.
"MainStage is a great chance for students to learn more about what the campus and community has to offer," said Danielle Rossman, assistant director of Student Activities and Involvement. "It's a good way to connect with organizations and resources on campus that could be very helpful in the future."
This year's MainStage takes place after the inaugural New Student Convocation ceremony, which runs from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in McGuirk Arena.
Led by President George Ross, the ceremony is meant to introduce incoming freshmen to the university and commemorate CMU's 125th anniversary.
Prior to MainStage, the annual Get Organized event is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 25 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Finch Fieldhouse.
Get Organized is a seminar designed to help leaders of student organizations develop ideas to be more effective in their leadership and learn strategies to reach a wider student audience.
