Question of the (fri)Day

What’s the purpose of your first event of the Fall Semester?

To have a reunion for your returning members.


To meet and connect with potential members.

Before you put a lot of energy, effort and resources into an event be sure to define the purpose and the audience. The purpose and audience will help you create the atmosphere and environment of the event.



  1. We do a care package handout. Over the summer we ask local churches to donate gift bags to be handed out to the students as a simple gift, an act of love with no strings attached. It is pretty cool, because on a campus with only 800 students living in dorms, we get over 200 care packages (maybe someday 800!). It is a fun way to meet new people, and for old friends to reconnect.

  2. We are doing both in order to give our returning students a chance to reunite and catch up. Then when we have our first event, they can focus on new students without feeling torn.
