It’s nice to have a chance to take a break and have some fun. Professional development, guest speakers and career fairs are great ways to network and develop career skills, but all work and no play makes College Students…or something like that. The following is a combination of some fun activities that the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford (UPB) and the University of Memphis do to make their Student Chapters not just a professional, but also a fun group to be a part of.
Pizza socials are a fun way to chat and meet new people, and it has food. Food attracts college students. (If it’s free food that’s where you really get a crowd) At UPB they had a fundraiser that was made up of a set of carnival games like disk toss. It was a great way to have some fun and raise money for a good cause!
It tends to be the fast-paced games that get crazy, and there’s not too much faster than the “Minute-to-Win-It” series. The University of Memphis hosted a “Minute-to-Win-It” contest and there were two teams – students, and faculty. I can only wish I was there to see it myself! In order to advertise for the event, they created fliers for their Facebook page, website, and the fliers had QR codes so the ones that were printed out could be scanned for more info. Nice touch!
