As all of us in the world of student programming are well aware, student engagement is the ultimate challenge. In these crazy times of quarantine, remote learning, and social distancing, keeping your students engaged is more challenging than ever. Albert Einstein once said, “creativity is contagious, pass it on.” With that in mind, what better way to engage your students than to spark their creativity? Let’s look at some virtual programs designed to harness that creative spark:
Virtual Paint Social
Paint Social combines fun, creativity, and encouragement into one event. Choose the painting you would like, set a date, and your host ships all of the materials to you. Individually wrapped painting supplies will be shipped to you to distribute to each participant, including paint, brushes, and canvases. Participants will follow our live-streamed paint class to create their very own artwork from wherever they are as our talented host guides the participants through the experience. Choose from one of our design options or request a custom design for your community.
Virtual Open Mic Night
For many, music is an important creative outlet to relieve stress. Whether it’s singing, playing an instrument or attending a concert. With our open mic night your students can showcase their talents or sit back and enjoy the live musical performance of their peers and one of the artists from our music roster. Choose a host from our roster of professional musicians who will facilitate a virtual open mic night via Live Stream. Our host will invite participants to showcase their own talents during the stream as well as perform covers and originals for your audience.
Virtual Campus Engagement
In this program, students will learn why people will or will not attend your events, what they may be doing that tells people “not to attend” and don’t even know it, and the 3 things that you need to do at every event that will boost campus engagement nearly instantly. Students will also gain insight on the #1 reason virtual events fail, what can be done to change that by learning creative online marketing strategies, and how to continue (or start) growing your clubs and organizations virtually.
Virtual Live “Unplugged” Karaoke
Be a rock star for the evening with ‘Virtual Live Unplugged Karaoke’! This show is your chance to take the virtual stage with a live band and show your stuff! Participants can choose a song from our extensive list of modern hits and classic favorites covering pop, rock, R & B, hip hop, and country. In the spirit of ‘MTV Unplugged’, ‘Virtual Live Unplugged Karaoke’ features an acoustic trio instead of a large band. Add a fun little twist by encouraging attendees to dress up as their favorite musician! This format offers a more relaxed setting for participants so they can lose their inhibitions and have a good time.
Creative DIY Novelty Programs
DIY novelty programs are a great opportunity for students to let their creative juices flow. You’ll receive everything they need for them to make their own unique item to their liking, shipped directly to you for distribution. Not on campus? No problem! We can ship individual packages to wherever your students are residing.

The best programs are the ones that encourage students to not just show up, but to participate and benefit from them. We don’t just want to fill a time slot. We want to provide an experience with tangible value, and we are happy to guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
