Panther Welcome Fair

We are going to have prizes and giveaway to our students. We’ll use these items to drive students to fill out the punch cards (name and e-mail addresses) where we will promote Campus Services and Parking and Transportation Services and our other auxiliary services. The idea behind the punch cards is that a student will have to get their card punched by at least two of our approved vendors participating at our Welcome Fair. They will then have to sign their name (agreeing to our terms) and provide a valid e-mail address. We will provide the student e-mails to the downtown and PC campus bookstores as well as PawPrints. We will then give them a give-away item of their choice and they will be entered into a grand prize drawing.
