WELL DO I HAVE THE BLOG FOR YOU!

It can be difficult to come up with creative and unique programming for whatever audience you’re aiming to engage. As an RA, I know I struggle to think of new programming for each year of students. It’s easy to fall into the same routines and programs I know “work”.

Well, that’s not always the case.

We find ourselves in new communities and new environments that require more effort than the typical ice cream social, complete with name games and ice breakers. For new student life programmers, this can certainly be a daunting task. You might find yourself at a completely new institution, different than anything you’ve ever experienced before.

The trick to breaking the cycle of pizza and cupcakes is to commit to unlocking your team’s creative genius. There are many ways you can become amazing at brainstorming, and build creativity into your daily life. If you focus on that, you will be coming up with new ideas to bring your organization to the next level of engagement.
