Applications with sketches that were submitted without any coloring may not be eligible for a bench.

We review the responses to all of the questions listed in the application in order to make informed decisions regarding the allocation and distribution of benches.

In order for your organization to eligible to paint a bench, it must be in good standing with the  Student Involvement, Office of Student Conduct, Student Centers, and Events Management.

Bench Painting instructions:  

Benches need to be painted on May 3rd during the Bench Painting Party.  If it is predicted to rain, we will be prepared to host the Bench Painting Party on May 4th.  Please plan accordingly.  All allocated benches must be painted by Friday, May 6th.  If your organization is not able to paint your bench by sunset on Friday, May 6th, you forfeit your bench and your organization will be ineligible for a bench the following year.  After Tuesday, May 3rd (or Wednesday, May 4th in the case it rains on Tuesday) your organization is responsible for providing any painting materials necessary to finish painting your bench.  Student Involvement will only provide supplies during the Bench Painting Party.  No supplies will be available for checkout afterward.
