RPTS Camp Day – Info for employers

Parking and Location Information

Venue: The event will be located in Rudder Plaza, the outdoor area which worked well in 2015 & 2016. This is a busy pedestrian corridor between the Memorial Student Union (0454 MSC) and Rudder Tower (0446 RDER):http://aggiemap.tamu.edu/

Parking: Two parking garages (Cain and Koldus) are within easy walking distance of Rudder Plaza. Cain sometimes has more open visitor spaces, but is accessed via Wellborn Road. If you wish to unload materials at the pull-through in front of Rudder Tower, it’s easier to get to Koldus Garage. Using the Search function in http://aggiemap.tamu.edu/ you can locate Rudder Tower, Cain Garage and Koldus Garage.

 

As you enter the parking garage, choose the “Visitors” lane and pull a ticket from the machine. Keep the ticket with you so you can pay for your parking before exiting. You may pay with a credit card at either a machine or the staffed booth, and the staff accept cash as well.  The cost for parking from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm is likely to be $13. The maximum cost for one day is $15.

Camp Day is sponsored by the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences (RPTS) at Texas A&M University (TAMU), the TAMU Career Center, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Texas Agri-Life Extension, and the RPTS Aggie Representatives, in cooperation with the Texoma Section of the American Camping Association. The purpose of this event is to provide opportunities for Texas A&M Students to meet with recruiters representing a variety of public, private, and not-for-profit camps from throughout the United States.

Camp Day will take place on Tuesday, October 24, 2017, in Rudder Plaza, outside of the Memorial Student Center (MSC). The Plaza is a busy pedestrian corridor throughout the day. Students will be invited to visit from 10 am until 2 pm. Camps may set up as early as 8:30 am.
Our RPTS Aggie REPS will publicize this opportunity through websites, social media and class announcements. Camps with Aggie staff members are urged to contact them and encourage them to bring friends to the event.

Upon registration, we request that employers list their top three preferences for location (by table number). The cost per table (with two chairs) is $75 for each spot without electrical access; a limited number of spots with electrical outlet access will be available at $85 per table. The layout map (which can be seen below) indicates which tables have electrical access, which are in the high-traffic Pedestrian Corridor without tent cover, and which are under the Large Tent. Due to traffic flow and space restrictions, employers are not permitted to set up small tents along the Pedestrian Corridor. As employers register, we will assign tables and remove them from the “Available Tables” list. Please register on-line (https://secure.touchnet.com/C21490_ustores/web/store_main.jsp?STOREID=152 ) and pay with a credit card. If your organization is not able to use a credit card for such purchases, please email Susan Scott at sgscott@tamu.edu to make alternate payment arrangements.

Tables are 6 foot x 18 inches
