(updated Fall 2012)
Holbrook Student Union is busier than ever. In order to better serve our patrons, we wanted to clarify some points regarding reservation processes, paperwork, and equipment usage. This information is primarily for student groups, university departments/colleges, and other on campus entities. All reservations by off campus personnel must be consulted with Mrs. Phyllis Prejean (337-475-5609) / firstname.lastname@example.org) or another Union Office staff member in her absence.

Special Events Requests
Pease start the process a few weeks out so you can be sure to meet the minimum 10 day rule. When using the Special Events Request form all signatures must be obtained and the form completed a minimum of 10 business days prior to the event.
If you are a registered student organization and wish to host an event in the Old or New Ranch or Quad, the process is a little more complex. Visit http://www2.mcneese.edu/calendar/booking.asp to find out if the space is available, then come by or call Mrs. Prejean at 337-475-5609 to confirm. If it is, then you can start filling out the Special Events Request Form. All of these signatures must be obtained in order and the form completed and turned back in a minimum of 10 business days prior to your event to ensure a confirmation of your event. No event is confirmed until the form has been received by the Union Office with all required signatures.
This form will need signatures from the following people in this order:

Many events will end here. Events which occur after normal business hours, generate revenue, or require extensive set-up and clean-up will need to have the rest of the signatures on the form.

MSU Police: University Police sign verifying their determination of event security
