Often during the year, campus clubs at Wentworth have retreats. They can take place either on or off campus. They usually consist of fun and educational activities. One of the clubs I am part of, the Wentworth Events Board (WEB) has a retreat every year around February. This year’s was Saturday February, 2. Our retreat was on campus and had a series of workshops. I have been a part of WEB for a while, so I was given the role of creating and facilitating a workshop about how to plan a successful event.
During the workshop I shared a PowerPoint presentation that outlined how to plan an event for WEB in the following steps:
1. Come up with an event
2. Bring it to the proper Committee
WEB has four event planning committees:
- The Daytime Committee who plans events that are grab-and-go like make-your-own lucky bamboo plant or make-your-own license plate.
-The Performing Arts Committee who plan events like concerts and comedians shows, (and once a year bring a live performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show to campus).
-The Beaux Arts Ball Committee who plans our Annual semi-formal off campus
-The Travel/Special Committee who plans off-campus trips to places like Six Flags and also any other events that do not go under the other categories.
In between workshops we played getting-to –know-you games. A good time was had by all.
