Scheduling of Fee for Admission/Participation Events or External Groups

The process for scheduling fee for admission/participation or external groups is the same as for internal groups EXCEPT that all events involving rental of facilities, or that have a participation fee attached to them, must be scheduled through the Event Services Office (ext. 6351).

Events in the Halleck Student Center

The primary purpose of Halleck Student Center is to serve as the hub of student events and activities and as a place for students, staff, and faculty to congregate and relax.  Rental of Halleck Ballroom and conference room space to external groups must not disrupt the conducting of business in offices nor detract from use by internal groups. In all cases, use by internal groups will take precedence. Internal groups include the Board of Trustees, Alumni Association, and Fellows.

Events on the Ballroom Level

  1. Events scheduled for the Ballroom should be contained within the Ballroom. Use of the North Lounge must be approved. Alcohol served at events in the Ballroom must remain on the Ballroom level. The Ballroom will be available to decorate no earlier than 24 hours prior to the start time of an event. Decorations must be pre-approved. Decorations must be removed immediately after the event. Any decoration left for SJC personnel to remove will result in the sponsoring individual/group being billed for labor. College furnishings may not be moved without prior approval.
  2. The North & South Lounges are available for use by internal groups in the evenings and on weekends, when students are on campus, if approved. The Lounges are available to external groups when students are not present on campus, if approved.
  3. The Director of Physical Plant must be able to ensure that furniture will be returned to normal set-up prior to 9:00 a.m. the morning following the event in order for an event to be approved. You will be contacted regarding your set-up needs if clarification is needed. Please note:
    1. A minimum four (4) hour turnover is required between an event taking place in the same building and location during normal business days (Monday—Friday, 7:30 a.m.—4:00 p.m.). Outside of normal business hours, a 14-day advance notice must be given to schedule the appropriate personnel to perform the turnaround in 4 hours. Hours worked outside the normal business hours will be charged to the external group reserving the facility.

PBMR Event at SJC

SJC Hosts PBMR Event

July 13, 2016
Explore the Core
  • SJC Education Students in the field

    Start Your Major Freshman Year

    Like Elementary Education major Brittany Cooper ’12, you start your major as soon as you walk in the door, so you will have four years of knowledge and experience in your field.You can even change your mind about your major and still graduate on time with lots of experience.

    Core and the major work in harmony to develop the cognitive skills requisite for success in a competitive, global society. Students better understand the forces that shape the future by exploring the past. They discuss contemporary events; analyze the impact of science on our understanding of humanity and the universe; and investigate diverse cultures and world civilizations. 

  • Professor Fred and Sally Berger at Graduation


    Small colleges offer you personal attention; SJC professors, such as Communication Professors Fred and Sally Berger, do more for you—they serve as mentors. Studies show that having a mentor leads to success in your field. Alumni often tell us how their professors not only played a major role in their success, but also became lifelong friends.  If you are undecided about what to major in, we help you decide.

  • High Quality Academics

    In the Core Program, you will be inspired to debate, analyze, and solve problems. Discussion of culture and society, the modern world, and Christian Humanism are just a few highlights of the Program. New perspectives will be gained, your worldview will expand, and you will graduate from SJC as a well rounded, highly marketable person.

  • Visiting Chinese Students


    You get more deeply involved at SJC, so you get more meaningful experiences that prepare you for career and life. LaMichelle Sanders ’14, for example, has spent two summers helping Chinese study abroad students adapt to life in the U.S. and at SJC. If you want to start a club or activity that doesn’t exist, we encourage you to start one. At SJC, prepare yourself for what you want to do in life.

  • Hoop House student workers

    Real-life Skills

    Because of the skills you develop by having the Core Program interact with your major for four years in addition to internships, job shadowing, and service learning, you get hands-on experience in preparation for your career or graduate school. Students Hanna Kane ’14, Emily Baird ’15, and Alyssa Guarnaccia ’14 collect food in the SJC hoophouse to be distributed on campus. You will also get four years of analytical, writing, and speaking skills that will serve you well for the rest of your life.
