Peak Times/Limited Availability

There are certain times of the school year when our availability is limited. Your understanding and advance planning during these times are appreciated:

  • Presentations during the first and last 2-3 weeks of each semester are possible, but require at least one month notice.  It is a busy time in the ASC, and our schedules fill up quickly.
  • Presentations during winter, spring, or fall break can be difficult to accommodate.
  • We provide workshops throughout the semester as an alternative to presentations. 

Please keep in mind submitting a request is not a guarantee of a presentation as it is based on our staff's availability. Please also be mindful of the size of your group; we want to accommodate the most people possible when the need is highest. Thank you for your support!
