Last weekend, Sigma Alpha met for their annual fall retreat. Fall retreat is an opportunity to spend a significant amount of time on the projects and goals Sigma Alpha will be encountering in the upcoming year.
It started out with a mixer, where girls drew pictures and explained the activities of their summer.
Then the committees; social, fundraising, recruitment, and professional met to discuss the plans for the following year. Ideas such as an etiquette dinner for a professional event and a boot raffle for fundraising were discussed.
Next, Lauri Baker, from the Agricultural Communications department shared knowledge about social media, and many different ways we can improve our online presence.
We were lucky to be able to meet a few of our alumni. We brainstormed ideas and discussed ways the alumni chapter could help show support to the collegiate chapter. The alumni also provided us with a tasty lunch from Rays Apple Market!
We went over some loose ends, like discussing recruitment plans and going over bi-law changes, and then it was time for more fun. We played a fun mixer game called people to people, basically a form of human twister. The pictures show the fun that everyone had.
Retreat went exceptional this year, and it has gotten the girls very excited for the upcoming activities this semester!
