Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We held an Information Table where we had games and resources for people walking by a fairly busy area on campus. It was a good time to have it because there were a number of visiting high school students in the area at the time. Due to ongoing lower enrollments and less on-campus activities, it was not quite as busy as it was in the past but overall I would say it was successful. We passed out a number of the books and pamphlets and answered questions.

Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Emails
  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Our student development office was a little slow on approving the event so we did not get to advertise as much as I would have liked, but we will plan better for future events.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

I do think the resources are phenomenal and are useful to our community. I am hoping for future events to partner with other departments on campus so that we can really make an impact.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

Plenty of advance advertising is probably the most useful thing.
