12: Learning Opportunities for Students in Planning Late-Night Programs w/ John Leonard

That’s especially true when they’re organized by the students themselves. From zombie proms to African Motherland events, Radford University has seen its students come up with fantastic programs.

In this episode John Leonard, Assistant Director of Student Activities at Radford, tells you how to empower your students to do the same.

They have a program: Radford after dark. To encourage weekend programming on weekend nights. Give them the chance to come up with event ideas: we don’t do the work for them. Give them the ownership; it’s all on them.

Peer-to-peer interaction, students come out because they’re friends are planning them. Zombie prom, motherland event, girls night in etc. Many of them have become annual events.

Incentives: A little bit extra funding for late-night events. “It’s all about student development.” “We’re creating opportunities so students aren’t just learning in the classroom, but the whole time they’re here.”
