The planning for Thursday’s campus meeting was going well, until you suddenly discovered you needed a riser and a setup for a five-person discussion panel.

Alec Mallmann, Event Services Manager, who oversees the Student Centers equipment rental program, says, “Don’t panic, we’ve got you covered.”

The rental program provides extra tables, chairs, pipe and drape backdrops, staging, props, and other equipment so that you don’t need to purchase or rent from an off-campus provider.

“From a single podium to multi-tiered staging, we can meet your needs, including decorative plants to ‘friendly up’ a stage,” Mallmann said.

The rental program student team will deliver any items you need when you need them, generally the day of the event. When you walk in, everything is ready. And when the last word is spoken, they take care of packing up.

“We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want your meeting to go well and we put in the time up front to make sure that it does.

“We do custom set ups and our well trained student staff are very skilled in solving problems that come up,” he said.

“We’re expanding our inventory so that we can make your event pop,” said Mallmann, “For example, we just purchased several serpentine tables, which are very popular for small group discussions.”

Mallmann’s staff makes it a point to stop by your set up on the day of the event to make sure that everything is just as you expected.

“And, to accommodate any last minute changes that are needed,” he said.
