It’s becoming the time of year where it seems like there’s always a holiday around the corner. College students, in particular, will be feeling festive and looking for fun activities to do on campus. If you’re in charge of event planning at your local college and wondering what the next big shindig should be, College Gigs can help you out. Serving the New England area, it’s their job to be your one-stop shop for local vendors, DJs, caterers, and college event ideas.
Here are some of their favorite holiday-themed party events:
Winter Potluck Campus Event: Some students might not have plans for Thanksgiving weekend. It could be because they don’t have anywhere to travel or celebrate the holiday. Whatever the reason, it can make the long weekend a little lonely. For all those students with nowhere to go on Thanksgiving, consider organizing a winter potluck with music. If you have the budget, hire a caterer to accommodate for students who are unable to bring anything.
Christmas Market Tour: One beloved winter tradition is browsing Christmas markets and seeing what local vendors have for sale. However, not every student will be able to go to these, especially if they don’t have cars or your college isn’t close to any. For this college event, you could rent a few vans and chauffeur students to one or more Christmas markets. Then, at the end, everyone could reconvene on campus for hot cocoa.
Campus Knitting & Crocheting Workshop: Some of the most thoughtful gifts are handmade, especially for the recipient. With winter approaching quickly, many people will be breaking out the knitting needles and getting started on hats, scarves, and other projects. This idyllic winter pastime is also relaxing and therapeutic for many people and a great way to have fun indoors. This winter, you could host a knitting workshop on campus with a professional instructor. You could also cap off the evening with a movie, which students can watch while working on their projects.
