    An active shooter cannot be predicted to follow any pattern and the response to an active shooter is arguably one of the most dynamic situations anyone will ever face. How you respond will be dictated by the specific circumstances of the encounter, as well as your own level of self-awareness and confidence in your ability to react in a timely and appropriate manner. I hope the information I share here will be helpful to you in preparing for and reacting to an active shooter situation, as well as inform you about what to expect from responding law enforcement.

    The college drag show: for some universities, it’s been around for a few years; for others, it’s a new idea on the horizon. Regardless, it’s a phenomenon sweeping the student activities nation, increasing in popularity and frequency. This rise in prominence is due in large part to the increased presence of drag culture in popular media. Given the increasing presence of drag performance on colleges nationally, it’s important to reflect on how student activities staff and higher education as a whole can support students in bringing these events to campus.

    This session will discuss how to approach revamping a traditional event on campus while still aligning with the university’s culture and needs. It will highlight how to identify if your event needs a change, the thought process behind why the event is done the way it is, and how to enhance or completely uproot and event and start over. Examples from Rowan University will be shared from the presenter. After the lecture portion, students in this session will be divided into groups of people with similar university structure and share stories of their traditional events and how other schools approach the same event or issue. Then, students will be divided into groups of people with different university structure to gain a wider understanding and see what works at other universities. Students will take away strategies and connections that will help when thinking of revamping their longstanding events. Presented at the 2017 NACA Mid Atlantic Regional Conference in Buffalo, NY.

    How do you encourage a student to market your event for you? You give them something in return. And it doesn't have to be something expensive or extravagant like a shirt or gift card - it could be as simple as featuring their post on your social media accounts, liking back, or giving them a print of their post in real time. In this program, we will walk through how some campuses are properly leveraging something that all students are using - social media - and turning it into a tool that drives reach, impressions, and engagement at their events.The program is designed to give you the confidence to embrace social media, and turn it into a central feature at your events.
