Purple Palooza -Get the Scoop - Registration Form Fall 2018

The Office of Student Activities is hosting Purple Palooza the last week of August this year. We encourage each organization to participate! We want to encourage each group to have something fun to give out at their booth or an activity that the students can do at your booth.

Keep in mind, it's usually hot at the event, so plan accordingly.  Plus it tends to be really windy at the event, so be sure to secure your boards and items that are on your tables. We encourage you all to bring a tent!

HOW TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BOOTH:

COME UP WITH A THEME!!  EVERYONE LIKES A THEME! This way you can give the seniors something that they can remember your organization by!  Put a label on the items so they can remember you when they come for Freshman Connection!  For example: (but not limited to.....)

REMEMBER TO HAVE A MEANINGFUL CONVERSATION WITH THE FRESHMEN.  The students want to feel welcomed.  Be open to having a conversation with strangers.  They are interested, they just might not seem like they are.  Be the leader that you are and that you are capable of being!  You are IN COLLEGE, they WANT to be here and be just like YOU!!
