Touch-N-Go is tasked with providing on-campus entertainment in addition to supporting student organizations with their events.
Touch-N-Go Productions comprises of eight executive board members, all of which are official representatives of the Student Government Association, and a team of volunteer students.

Members of Touch-N-Go Productions have the opportunity to learn all aspects of event production ranging from light board programming, sound mixing, truss rigging, and event planning. Because the organization’s structure, Touch-N-Go primarily relies on student volunteers to keep its shows running.
Since Touch-N-Go is comprised mostly of students, bringing the very best in campus entertainment is a common goal shared in the organization.
