SWOSU Organizational Fair Coming Up August 24


The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Organizational Fair, sponsored by the Student Government Association, is coming up Thursday, August 24, and over 50 applications for booths have already been received from area businesses, places of worship, and student organizations/clubs.

SGA Public Relations Secretary Donovan Fuller said the organization is accepting additional applications through August 22.  

The Organizational Fair, a long standing SWOSU tradition, is held during the Dawg Days celebration welcoming students back to campus. This year's event will begin on Thursday, August 24, at 10 a.m. and continue through 4 p.m on the Student Center lawn. Tables and chairs are being generously provided by Duncan Taylor (Director, SWOSU Auxiliary Services) and Kevin Bartel (Director, SWOSU Fine Arts & Conference Center).   

"The Organizational Fair is one of my favorite events to coordinate as student president,” said SWOSU Student Body President Garrett King. “Area merchants, student organizations, and university offices converge on the south lawn for a great day of sharing different ideas, products, activities, and services. If you have not registered for the fair yet, get it done, and come join us in welcoming the student body back to Weatherford."

Entry forms for the fair continue to be available at the Student Government Center (124 West College), the SWOSU Dean of Students' Office (Stafford Building, Room 214), the Weatherford Area Chamber of Commerce Office (Weatherford City Hall), and the SWOSU Public Relations and Marketing Office (Administration Building, Room 205). Forms may also be returned to any of those locations.

All parties wanting to reserve space at the fair must complete an entry form. The SGA office can be contacted at 580.774.0615 or by emailing sga@swosu.edu. Forms may be faxed to 580.774.0612.
