We want to ensure that opportunities we offer to the student organization community are worth the time and effort we know you invest in participating in recruitment events. Accordingly, due to low attendance numbers at these events so far, we have decided to cancel future showcase events for the remainder for September and October.

We encourage student organizations to leverage technology tools to continue outreach efforts for new member recruitment, in addition to exploring safe in-person outreach activities as they are comfortable. If organizations would like to set up a consultation with someone from the student organization development team to brainstorm recruitment strategies, please contact thesource@vt.edu.

Event Safety Guidelines

  • All event staff, student organizations, and attendees will be required to wear a face covering.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at check-in, throughout the event, and at each organization table.
  • Admission to the event will be contactless using ticket scanners and e-tickets.
  • Student organization tables will be placed in a way to accomodate physical distancing.
  • Student organizations will have a break in between ticket windows (3 total) to clean their space in preparation for the next wave.
  • Any participants or attendees who feel sick, are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, and/or have been exposed to a known case of COVID-19 in the last 14 days should not attend the event.

Check out Gobblerfest on September 4 on GobblerConnect. Many of the organizations from the Showcases (and many more) will be present at the virtual event.

We recommend that you arrive no more than five minutes early for your ticket window. 

No. In order to create as safe an event as possible each attendee will need to have a ticket. This allows us to keep record of how many people are in the event space at any given time as well as maintain an accurate record of those present.

No. We intend to make a list of participating organizations available to students prior to ticket selection. Changing the list after tickets are available does not prove advantageous to student attendees.

We have limited sponsorship opportunities available. Email gobblerfest@vt.edu for more details.
