The logistics team deals with day-of logistics to ensure that the event runs smoothly through coordination with university staff, sponsors, students, and the others teams on BigRed//Hacks. Logistics provides the facilities and all operational requirements for BigRed//Hacks events. Whether it's food or midnight stargazing, logistics has got it covered.

They must also represent sponsors during any relevant PR initiatives (website, swag, etc).
