Tired of Your Campus Events?
October 7, 2009 | NeW Staff
Are you frustrated with the current political and cultural climate on your campus? Have you thought about doing something big to get people talking?
One of the ways in which NeW works to confront the cultural problems on campuses is by hosting events: speakers, debates, roundtables. This is a great way for NeW to gain recognition on your campus and to promote a positive alternative voice in the process. With events like “Sex Week” at the University of Kentucky, it’s clear that one side is working hard to promote their agenda. Now, it’s our turn. We as culturally conservative have a unique opportunity to express our views and enlighten our campuses in the process.
Here’s a quick shortlist of things to do to host a NeW campus event:
1) Identify an issue or problem on campus and come up with a response.
2) Decide on the format of your event and potential speakers to bring in.
3) Contact NeW, Inc. at [email protected] for help with ideas, planning, speakers, and resources.
4) Collaborate with other conservative groups on campus. The more individuals you have working to host an event, the better!
5) Get planning! Reserve a venue on your campus, schedule a speaker, and prepare an advertising plan. Some helpful tips: banners, tabling, fliers, press release to the school paper, facebook event, email list servs, etc. Diversify your advertising efforts.
6) Enlighten your campus! When you host your event, don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe as you articulate your viewpoints.
NeW encourages young women to work together to provide a positive voice, to encourage women to embrace their femininity, and to challenge the current campus status quo.
The NeW Women at ASU hosted Christina Hoff Sommers, author of Who Stole Feminism? to speak to their campus.
The NeW women at Purdue University hosted Star Parker, conservative author and speaker, to address their school.
