  1. The Chamberlain Student Center & Campus Activities, suite 220 in the Student Center serves as home for SUP. Stop by any time for information or just to say "Hi!" The door is always open. Back to the top.

  2. We advertise around campus and online in a variety of ways:

    • Look for flyers in your residence hall or on-campus apartment in community spaces and in academic buildings.
    • Stop by the Student Center Pit and check out our giant posters hanging along the interior walls.
    • We have a calendar of events available online and in print at the Student Center Information Desk. All residents on-campus should also receive a copy each semester when they move back in.
    • We send out an email for each event via the Rowan Announcer (Rowan Daily Mail).
    • Digital Signage (TV) around campus - near the SC Info Desk, Savitz Hall, Profs Place and the Campbell Library 
    • Follow us on Twitter @RowanSCCA, Instagram @RowanSCCA or LIKE us on Facebook. Back to the top.
  3. We would not be able to provide the entertainment that we do without our general membership who voluntarily serve on committees and help staff our events. To get involved you can:

    • Attend a SUPdate meeting - see our get involved page for dates & locations!
    • Talk to an Executive Board member at any one of our events that you attend 
    • Check out the committee meeting times on the about SUP page and just show up with a smile! 
    • Stop by the office (SC 220) and talk with an executive board member. Back to the top.
  4. Here is a list of all the ways SUP can benefit YOU: 

    • Make lasting friendships through planning and helping with fun events and activities on campus. 
    • Meet and work with a diverse group of your peers and nationally recognized performers.
    • Network with on-campus professionals.
    • Be a part of the decision-making team for what your Rowan friends and peers want to see in on-campus entertainment and programs. Have your voice heard! 
    • Extend your education outside of the classroom and build your resume with life skills gained through volunteering including:
      • interviewing 
      • contract negotiation 
      • budgeting 
      • interpersonal communication 
      • organization 
      • team management 
      • event management 
    • Get recognized for your hardwork and dedication through our Committee Member of the Month Awards and Prof Point program. Back to the top.
  5. For every volunteer hour a general member puts in, they will be given a Prof Point. The SUP Secretary keeps track of Prof Points and general members are awarded for their time throughout the semester, as well as at the end of each semester at the celebratory banquet. Back to the top.
  6. SUP works within a budget allocated by the Student Government Association to plan events and activities for students. We try to recuperate some of the cost so that we can increase the number of events that we do. Our ticketed events are always kept at a low-rate for students. Comparatively, an SUP fee is a fraction of what a ticket for a similar event might cost at a public venue. Back to the top.
  7. A Rowan Student ID is required for check-in at every SUP event, and is uploaded to Proflink to track student attendance. Back to the top.
  8. All tickets for SUP events are sold at the Student Center Information Desk located on the main level/first floor of the Chamberlain Student Center next to the Marketplace (the cafe). Tickets go on sale on Fridays at 2 p.m. and remain on sale during the Info Desk's business hours until they are sold out or the day of the event. If you plan to purchase a ticket for an event the Friday it goes on sale, get to the Student Center and in line early. Most events sell out quickly. Back to the top.

  9. For a full list of SUP ticket sales and off-campus trip policies, please visit the SUP Policies Page. Back to the top.
  10. As an SGA sponsored organization, SUP is allocated a budget for the school year which is shared among all the committees to provide for various events. The Off-Campus committee plans within their means to plan the best, most interesting, worthwhile, and reasonably affordable trips available for students. Additionally, the limited number is due to capacity on the busses used for transportation to and from trips. Back to the top.
  11. We offer three events each year that showcase student talent: Laugh Off Comedy Competition, Battle of the Bands, and Hollybash: 

    • Laugh Off Comedy Competition: A student-only stand-up comedy competition. In order to compete you must be a current Rowan student with valid Rowan I.D. Typically held in the fall semester.
    • Battle of the Bands: At least one member of the band must be a current Rowan student with a valid Rowan I.D. in order for the band to be eligible to compete. Typically held in the spring semester.
    • Hollybash: At least one member of the band/act must be a current Rowan student with a valid Rowan I.D. in order for the band to be eligible to apply for a chance to perform at the event. Typically held in the spring semester. Back to the top.
  12. We do not rent out our equipment without a trained SUP technician. This includes speakers, lights, etc. We understand that you may have a professional working your event, however, our policy is that our equipment must be operated by one of our SUP trained technicians. Back to the top.
  13. Stop by the office, room 220 in the Student Center, to pick up a tech request form and DCA form. The tech request form serves as an agreement between both parties and lists all the equipment you'll need. The DCA is the paperwork necessary for payment. The Director of Technical Services will schedule a meeting with a representative from your organization to discuss your needs and the details of the event (number of techs, equipment needed, fees, etc.).
