Add Waivers to Event Registrations

Include a waiver with registration for your next event

Some events must require a waiver to be signed by students registering for the event. With CampusGroups, you can easily create and include a waiver to offer your attendees the ability to agree to any displayed terms you would like to include. This is very useful for certain events such as sports tournaments and travel excursions like spring break treks.

Waiver text includes terms and conditions for which attendees need to agree in order to complete registration for your event.

When you create a new event, you have the option to:

  • Select a default waiver provided by your school.
  • Create a new waiver by adding your own custom text.

Your waiver text will be auto-populated on the event registration page. You can make it mandatory for attendees to agree to your waiver in order to complete registration.

The new mentoring feature is now available in beta under 'More' > 'Mentoring'. Add tutors, or let them apply to become a tutor online. New tutors can add their availability time-slots online and start communicating directly with the tutors.

9 Innovative Ways to Promote Your Events: Beyond Banners and Sidewalk Chalk

Planning an event? CampusGroups can help you engage your community and get the word out about your upcoming event.

Here are 9 tools in your CampusGroups arsenal to maximize exposure of your next event:

  1. Calendar.  Events created on CampusGroups are automatically added to your school’s Calendar of events for everyone to see. You’re already off to a great start!

  2. News Feed.  Once your event is created, a pop up allows you to post the event on the school feed. Your  message will be displayed on the Home Page for every student when they log on CampusGroups.

  3. Group Email.  Announce by email, targeting specific groups of students, or add event details into your next newsletter. Seamlessly embed your event into a ready-to-go template from within your CampusGroups account. You can also share your published email and event registration link on your school and/or group news feeds.

  4. Blog.  Post about the event on your group blog:  before, during and after. Don’t forget to mention any giveaways -- a sure fire way to boost attendance.

  5. PhotosPost exciting, relevant photos on your group web site. Invite participants to upload their event-related photos into the stream.

  6. Social.  Share your event link on social networks -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn Events (great way to target alums), etc. Create a hashtag for the event and ask participants and attendees to use it, also. This can both archive and expand the breadth of your event.

  7. Live promotion.  Be sure to have materials out during your preceding events and at information tables on campus for guests to see. Have them RSVP for the event on your computer, tablet or smartphone while they munch on some “propacandy” (attach a little label with your design on candy to distribute). Collect participant names to add to your CampusGroups contact list for future communication.    

  8. Survey.  Get interactive. After your event, create a survey on your CampusGroups web site to gain feedback from the guests who attended to help plan for your next event with CG’s analytical tools.

  9. Connect + Cross-promote.  Co-sponsor with other groups. Invite student and community groups to attend and help publicize through their resources. Coordinate with a theme, charity, or presenter’s book signing. Add a panel discussion featuring VIP guests. Inquire with professors whether they might offer extra credit for attending your event.

And if you need more promotional materials, the CampusGroups Design Team can help create custom posters and brochures, dedicated conference websites and more.

So many ways to get the word out. We invite you to share your own successful ideas for promoting your campus events.
