Group projects are not easy to manage. It becomes especially difficult to handle as a leader when the level of participation varies amongst individual team members. Project leaders must assume all risks to bare the burden of finishing in a timely fashion and getting everything right. We must lead as an example and find creative ways to get the work done from our group members. During this past month, I’ve figured out what it takes to make it all possible from experience as captain of my debate team.
The Honors Student Advisory Committee (HSAC) is the student arm of the Honors Program at the City University of New York’s LaGuardia Community College. We are a very active grassroots, student-driven collective that aims to cultivate a community of students and alumni committed to providing academic, professional, leadership and civic engagement opportunities to the student body at our college.
The event your organization plans is only as good as the number of people who attend. College students are bombarded with promotions about events on campus, from Facebook events to flyers – so try to find ways to generate interest through other outlets.
Partner with another student organization
Double your promotional power by co-sponsoring with another student organization that could align with the theme of your event. Possible partners could be through Greek Life, health and wellness centers, and performance groups. Not only does it increase the number of people spreading word, but it can also attract a bigger and more diverse audience. Don’t forget about reaching out to outside charities as well.
