Campus Events for Local Businesses and Employers

Welcome Week Opportunities for Local Businesses and Employers

We will once again offer the opportunity for local businesses and employers to come to campus at the start of the academic year to meet and connect with our student for the purposes of selling goods, employee recruitment, and advertising services. 

As you are probably aware, there is a zero solicitation policy in place at Carson-Newman University.  However, this event will be the exception to that policy.  Consequently, this will be a rare opportunity for businesses to visit campus, freely introduce themselves, and share their goods and services with our students.

(2018 Get Local Business Fair)

We only require that personal information beyond names and emails of our students not be collected for any purpose that could be understood as coercive in nature or intent.
