Every month, your students and their friends have all sorts of hang-outs with each other. They’re college students, right?
In dorms, apartments, in town, even on the road: They’re “doing community” in the ways they find especially natural (and ways they find most fun). Sometimes it’s informal and unplanned; other times it’s facilitated by an evite and some really creative hospitality.
So… How often do you learn from those students’ activities?
Have you ever considered letting students’ own social calendars inform what you do for the “social” things?
Or might students even show you HOW to do it- perhaps a variety of smaller groups, or a willingness to go really late, or an openness to last-minute fun?
