We received a lot of great suggestions for clubs and activities from student responses to the ELI Student Life Interest Survey sent out last month. Some of the most popular requests included academic clubs for students in Allied Health and Business Administration programs and social clubs for working, older adults and student moms. The top three choices for types of clubs were: fitness and nutrition, community service, and travel and tourism. As for activities, the top three choices were: seminars and workshops, community service events, and field trips.
We received a lot of "other" creative and unique ideas. A few include:
- Dinner clubs and other social gatherings for older adults returning to school
- Online chats with guest speakers in different career fields
- Blog or journal club
Programs and activities are now being planned to reflect your needs and interests. In the meantime, keep voicing your ideas and opinions by adding a comment to this post, and stay tuned for more updates!
