Our YAL chapter at University of Wisconsin – Green Bay had a successful student organization fair in September. Our org fairs (called ‘Org Smorg’) have a new theme every semester and this fall’s was “Arcade Games.” We designed a Mario-themed poster with mystery boxes.
People who came to the table would pick a box and answer the question under the flap to win gold coins. our quetions spanned topics from campus free speech to incarceration rates and national debt to US foreign policy.
The Wisconsin Leadership Institute Field Representative, James Weeks, helped us table. He brought a Ron Swanson cardboard cut out which definitely drew a crowd and caught a lot of attention.
Overall we had over 40 signups – which is very successful for an organization on our campus – and had over 20 people attend our first meeting.Published in
