Residence Hall Room Stuffing for Fall 2016
Submitted by Gretchen Brockman
Each summer Campus Living offers an annual marketing opportunity called “Room Stuffing”. The Residence Life staff receives promotional items from departmental units within Student Affairs which are “stuffed” into the residence hall rooms prior to student move-in. When combined, these items serve as a “welcome bundle” of sorts for our residents. Campus Living staff provides this as a service and an opportunity to reach out to our students, right away when they arrive.
To participate, we need to observe a strict timeline because the days and weeks before we open the halls are an extremely busy time due to staff training and hall preparation. We only take items from departments within Student Affairs, Athletics, ECU Police, and ECU Student Stores. The only student organizations we will be taking items from are SGA, RHA, and Student Media. Deadlines for this year are as follows:
By June 13, 2016: Notify us that you/your department plans to participate
By July 18, 2016: Provide a list of what your item(s) is(are) and how you will want it distributed
By August 1, 2016: Deliver your item(s) to Campus Living if you wish us to count/sort the items on your behalf for distribution (we will begin receiving deliveries July 22nd)
By August 3, 2016: Deliver your item(s) to Campus Living if you provide them to us counted, pre-sorted, and organized for distribution
Important Note: We cannot take any items after August 3, 2016.
We can distribute in the following manner on your behalf, dependent on your needs and wishes:
• One per bed
• One per room door
• One per suite
• One per RA
• One per floor
If you wish to participate, use the chart in the image to help you determine how many of each item will be needed, dependent on your choice for distribution. Please take the coming weeks to discuss within your areas if you would like to take advantage of this exciting opportunity and if so, I look forward to hearing from you by (or before) June 13th. As you consider room-stuffing items, please remember the following guidelines:
• No items advertising the product or use of alcohol or tobacco
• No bar/pub/adult establishment sponsorship/advertising
• No Pepsi products or sponsorship/advertising
• No apartment complex sponsorship/advertising
• Items should be lightweight and/or not too cumbersome for delivery and distribution (cups, magnets, folders, door hangers and the like are all fine; 2-Liters of Coke products are not)
