Trade in-kinds refer to physical goods, supplies and services that can be used for the preparation and execution of Orientation. These may include but are not limited to providing meals, giveaways and/or event space and should equate to the cost you would like to supplement. Please contact Jennifer Asouzu at sapartnr@mailbox.sc.edu if you would like to learn more about trade in-kinds.
