o Dean's Presentation

Invite one of the deans from the Undergraduate Dean's Office to present their Road Show to sophomores. Email Brian Reed for more information.

Have your alumni/ae over to discuss their career with the new members. Decide on the format of the event; panel discussion, round tables, reception. Give your alumni/ae an outline for the event.

o Attend academic programs together

Have the new members select an academic program and attend the event together.

o Study table for PNM and members

In the development of an entire chapter academic program, have study tables that include both members and new members in attendance. Do not require a specific number of hours. 

o Big/Little Academic challenge

Create a competition pairing 'bigs' and 'littles' together to achieve the highest or most improved GPA. Have the teams spend time together creating an academic plan to succeed.

Assign each new member an academic 'big' in their field of study to help the new member with their academic program.
