Once auditions are finished and your callback sheets have been collected, lunch will be available in Pfleeger Lobby. You are also welcome to get food around or off campus (using the list of recommended establishments in your folder).

CALLBACKS

An announcement will cue the "release of the kraken," and the college fair will begin. You will have the remainder of the event to meet the students you have called back, as well as students interested in learning more about your institution. We know the students are excited to meet all of you, so please plan to attend the entirety of the college fair if travel plans permit.

END OF DAY

At the end of the day, you will strike your table displays and leave your lanyard on the table before you leave. We will collect your lanyard and strike all tables and chairs after you've finished packing up.
