Frequently Asked Questions...
1. Where can I find parking?
Make sure you stop at the Sonoma State University Parking Booth located at the main entrances to pick up your complimentary parking pass. Then find parking at any of the general parking lots. After you park you will go to the JUMP office located in the Student Center.
2. Where is the table going to be?
The tabling location will be in front of the Student Center. If you are using JUMP's table, you can pick that up on the 2nd floor of the Student Center at the Student Activities Desk.
3. What happens if it's raining?
If it happens to be raining on your scheduled tabling day, you may set up your table under the awning in front of the Student Center. Additionally, there is covered space outside the first floor of the Library.
4. What should I bring?
You should bring position descriptions, brochures, information about upcoming events, sign-up sheets, or anything else you may need. Please only bring what you are able to carry as we will not be able to assist you from your car to your table.
5. When is the best time to table?
It depends on what you're tabling for. If you're tabling for volunteers for an event, it is best to table 1-2 weeks prior to the event. If you are tabling for interns, at the end of the semester or the beginning of the semester is best so that students can register for internship units. Usually, campus is the most active during the first and last few weeks of the semester and during midterms. There seems to be lower campus activity during the weeks prior and after holidays. See the academic calendar for these dates.
On the day you're tabling, you can pick up your table from JUMP any time after 9 AM and it must be returned by 5 PM. The JUMP office is located on the 2nd Floor of the Student Center, in the Student Activities area.The table can be signed out at the front desk. Partial days are fine, but since lunchtime is the best time of day to recruit students, it is best to make sure you're tabling then. We recommend tabling on Thursdays because it is the busiest day on campus, however if you would rather table on a different day of the week, please let us know. Fridays are particularly sparse, however there are more returning, local and graduate students on campus, so if you're targeting that population, you might try a Friday.
