PLANNING YOUR EVENT
1. Deciding the kind of event you want.
Will it be a dinner, reception, or simple beverage service?
Will guests stand, or be seated?
Will it be formal, casual, or in-between?
What is your budget?
Do you want hot food or cold food?
While not every decision needs to be finalized at this point, the more you know what you want, the easier your planning will be.
2. Reserving your room in the University Center.
Contact the Conference Assistant at 816-235-1416. Be sure to select a room that is the correct size for the number of guests and type of function you are planning.
3. Contact the Catering Office.
Making arrangements at the earliest possible date will insure sufficient time to plan all aspects of your event. At least ten days before the event, please contact our catering office to finalize arrangements that may also require making an appointment. This is the time for a thorough discussion of all specifics and details. The catering office is located in the University Center. 816-235-1076.
