How can I participate?

Futsal Tournament

Register a team for the second annual GU Futsal tournament! That's right, not football, not soccer, but the international sport of Futsal! Teams can consist up of to ten (10) players with five (5) players on the court at a time. Registration fee is $10/player which includes, snacks, drinks, certified refs, t-shirts and medals for the top 3 teams. Team registration is now open on HoyaLink- Click here to register! Deadline to register is March 3rd. 

Food Booths

Host a table in our food booth section to share food from your home country or culture. Food booths can receive up to $200 in funding in order to either buy food from local restaurants to share or purchase ingredients to cook your own dishes. OGS provides all cutlery, plates, and drinks, so all you need to bring is yourself and the food! We recommend having two students per group staff each table throughout the event in order to collect tickets and serve food. Click here to apply to host a Food Booth! Applications close on March 1st.

Performers

Perform on the White Gravenor Esplanade or Copley Lawn during Global Expo! Speakers and a DJ are supplied by OGS. Past performances have included music and dance, but we welcome applications from all types of performers! Click here to apply to perform at Global Expo. Applications close on March 1st.
