Student Organizations: Pepsi Student Experience Fund
Pepsi Co. donates a limited amount of free Pepsi products to the University for distribution by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. Each year, a certain amount is allocated for use by Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs). RSOs may apply for product for an event they are sponsoring by filling out an application form, available online. Students must print out the Application for Pepsi products, fill it out and return it to Student Involvement, 200 NU or 300 NEC. Please ensure that you are turning in your application for Pepsi on the proper due date. See the chart below for deadlines.
In order for your RSO’s event to be considered for free Pepsi products, it must meet the following criteria:
- Events must be held on campus.
- Events must be campus-wide and open to all students. (No general meetings will be eligible for free Pepsi products.)
- The event must be free and for UNL students only. Faculty and staff events are not eligible.
- Allocated beverages may NOT be sold or used to generate profit in any way.
- The RSO must fill out an Event Planning & Registration (EPR) form for the event
All applications are subject to review by a committee in the Student Involvement office. Only completed applications turned in by the appropriate deadline will be considered. Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) are encouraged to plan ahead and apply early, especially for larger events. Waiting until the end of the semester may result in limited available funding. Submitting a request does not guarantee that the RSO will receive free Pepsi products. In order to be eligible for free Pepsi products, the group applying must be a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) in total compliance with ASUN and Student Involvement guidelines and bylaws. If you are not sure if your RSO is in total compliance, call the Student Involvement Consultation Desk at 472-6797 to inquire.
A guideline to determine the amount of product is four (4) cases per 100 students. If a requester has requested too much product for the event type, Student Involvement does have the right to alter the amount of product on the request. Any outdoor event with more than 500 students attending will receive a hatchback trailer rather than cans or bottles. If an RSO does not receive free Pepsi products, the group may purchase Pepsi products at a reduced price by visiting the Student Involvement office. Pepsi purchase requests must be received ten (10) business days before the event.
