        • Weather considerations – August events will be warm; no classes in May or June for outside events (April could be chilly!)
      • Ohio Union reservations are expected to still be made one semester in advance for weekly/reoccurring meetings
        • June 18 is the 1 st day to book reservations for Autumn Semester 2012
      • Classroom scheduling deadlines are still being finalized, but anticipated to be set up similar to the current process
    • 8. Scheduling Tips
      • Longer academic day = less classroom evening availability for meetings
      • Morning and afternoon meetings should be considered
      • More accurate attendance estimates will lead to more room availability (fewer large rooms)
      • Poll your organization as Autumn semester classes are being scheduled to determine if your meeting time might need to change
