We’ve got to admit, college is about the experience.
Sometimes being part of a club on campus makes the college experience that much more enjoyable. Clubs thrive off events to raise money, awareness, membership and more.
Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) is here to help student clubs and organizations with their events. Here are a few ways ASI can help take the load off your shoulders when planning a student club event.
1. Partner with BEAT
The Bronco Events and Activities Team (BEAT) is ASI’s best outlet when it comes to events because that is their specialty. This team of lively students can potentially create a partnership with your club and provide everything from DJs, t-shirts, games and even pay for a portion of the overall cost.
All you have to do is contact BEAT at (909) 869-4455 and pitch your event during the open forum session of the BEAT meetings held every Friday at noon in England Evans of the Bronco Student Center (BSC). If the team approves of your proposed event and is available to provide the resources you need, they will follow up with details about partnering with you and will help get your event up and running.

2. Reserve a room in the BSC
The BSC features an array of rooms fit for almost any need. Visit Conference and Event Services (C&E) or call (909) 869-2847 to book one of the constellation-named rooms. C&E also offers audio and visual technical support and can provide projectors, tables, chairs and more. Want to host a movie night? Host it in our Centaurus theater. What about a small, five-person meeting? The Orion rooms or Vela Major are perfectly cozy for a small meeting. Visit asi.csupomona.edu/ce for more information.
3. Design marketing with Gas Creative Group
ASI’s award-wining and student-driven marketing group, Gas Creative Group (Gas), can help your club with its promotional needs.
Gas resides on the second floor of the BSC in the hallway to the right of ASI Business Services. You can walk in anytime from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. to fill out a Creative Request for the student team to assist your with printing, design and marketing for your club events. Gas even rents out a staple gun and staking kit and sells stakes and sleeves for poster staking throughout campus.
If you landed a partnership with BEAT, your event can be marketed for free and even featured on ASInside, ASI’s blog that connects students to information about events, services, programs, student life and everything ASI. For details about prices, design time, marketing and more, call (909) 869-2158.
4. Promote your event on our digital bulletin boards
ASI installed five 42” digital screens in the main lobby across from the Bronco Copy’n Mail in the BSC. For a very small fee, you can post an Office of Student Life approved flyer of your event on our screens for a number of days or even quarters at a time. This is a great way to avoid paper waste with flyers and to gain a lot of daily views from the hundreds of passers-by in what is one of the busiest hubs of Cal Poly Pomona student activity. For more information about how to post on the digital bulletin boards, visit the Gas office in room 2002 upstairs in the BSC or call (909) 869-2158. Click here for more details.
So in case you missed all of that, ASI is here for your club’s event needs. Need design help, some printing, a dash of marketing, or a splash of funding? We got you!
Students serve students at ASI, so we’re all in this together for however many years you plan on studying at Cal Poly Pomona.
