More than 250 student organizations, local non-profit agencies and IU offices that offer involvement opportunities will host tables at the event to attract new and returning students. Participants will be able to meet current student leaders, IU administrators and Bloomington community members in order to find involvement opportunities that meet their interests.

Indiana University student radio station WIUX will be broadcasting from the event, playing "pure student radio" throughout. In addition, local radio station B97 will do a live remote broadcast from the fair and will distribute free goodie-bags to students.
The 2010 IU Student Involvement Fair is sponsored by a committee including representatives from Student Activities, the Indiana Memorial Union, Union Board, the Commission on Multicultural Understanding, the Office of First Year Experience Programs and the Office of Diversity Education.
