What People Have Been Saying About “Program-in-a-Box”

“It’s a great event for us, and a fantastic way to help our members feel connected to their university community and to ACS as a whole…The fact that the entire event is essentially sent to us, pre-made, in a box makes the event very low maintenance. Because of this, we are able to focus more locally on promotion, acquiring food, and reserving space. This is where the focus is most important and the box concept frees us up to be able to do this.” 
- R. Riley Hatch, The University of Houston
