Plan your campus event

Lake Forest faculty and staff: Here’s everything you need to know and do to host an event on campus.

  • Check the campus calendar to choose a date. Make sure it doesn’t conflict with other events. 
  • Reserve a room in the room scheduler on my.lakeforest. Think about what kind of crowd you might get. If it’s a smallish one, consider using Meyer Auditorium, which seats around 70 or so comfortably. If you think you’ll get 75 or more, try for the Chapel or McCormick Auditorium. McCormick can hold up to 190 people and has a great set-up for movies and presentations. (Wondering which room would work best? Contact Kelly Matuszewski in the Gates Center.)
  • Room set-up: Contact Frances Williams  in Facilities Management or use this handy online form to arrange for the room to be set up. Have your account number ready, and be specific about your requirements, such as a podium, arrangement of table and chairs, and the like. 
  • Arrange to publicize your event by contacting Linda Blaser in the Office of Communications and Marketing. Give us at least a month to get it out to the public properly. 
  • Have posters designed and/or printed through Al Olson in the Office of Visual Communications. Have your account number ready! You are responsible for distributing posters. 
  • Want your event video-recorded? Fill out this form or contact David Levinson in LIT.
  • Contact Andrew Diehl in LIT for tech help (microphone, computer, etc.). 
  • Fill out the following form to have it show up on the campus calendar. (Having trouble with it? Contact Lindsey Nemcek.)
