Event Planning at Northern

Here to help ensure your event runs smoothly.

The Communications and Marketing Department at Northern plays an important role in the planning and promotion of events and activities on campus.

Per South Dakota Board of Regents policy 6:13; Such requests (facilities use by private parties) may be granted to the extent that institutional program schedules permit if the requested use is lawful and otherwise consistent with this policy, poses no risk of harm to persons or property, and will not disrupt the intended use of the facilities or grounds by the institution, its students, staff, or other visitors. 

A few of the services we may provide for campus sponsored events include:

Event logistics and planning

  • Coordinating with food service, media services and facilities
  • Alcohol requests - a minimum of four weeks' notice is required for these requests (on-campus locations are limited)

Event promotion

  • Press release
  • Social media
  • Email campaigns

Graphic design and photography

  • Invitations
  • Promotional graphics
