Attendee Engagement Initiatives

The engagement for #NASPA17 does not need to wait until you arrive in San Antonio. The Member Engagement Team of the NASPA Annual Conference have create the following three ways for you to get engaged now for #NASPA17. Access this blog to find out more information, but continue reading for some of the opportunities, some of which are due by March 6!

Institutional Wordle

Submit a unique Wordle for your institution and allow us to share your creation at the 2017 NASPA Annual Conference in San Antonio! Follow the steps to join in the fun.

  1. Using the Wordle philosophy, generate words to describe your campus. This could be to describe its culture, athletics, the orgs and academics. Anything counts.
  2. Creatively organize and emphasize your words. The more words, the better, and any shape is great. See the example below to give you an idea of what we are looking for, and feel free to use websites like Wordle, Tagul, or WordClouds to create your post.

  3. Submit you Wordle by March 6. We will highlight selected Institutional Wordles throughout the NASPA Conference. 

NASPA in a Nanosecond

Why are you attending the 2017 NASPA Annual Conference? Whatever the reason may be, we want to know with NASPA in a Nanosecond. (We know that a nanosecond is one billionth of a second, but NASPA in Ten Seconds doesn't sound as cool). Post a 10 second Snapchat or Instagram video telling us why you’re attending the conference, making sure to geofilter your location and, if applicable, tag #NASPA17 and call out naspapics (Instagram) or NASPAsnaps (Snapchat).

  1. Using your Snapchat or Instagram app, record your ten second video telling us why you’re attending the conference.
  2. Infuse your own creativity by adding your institution or city’s geotag, Emoji’s, and filters. See the example below to give you an idea of what we are looking for.

  3. Submit you post by March 6. We will highlight some voices throughout the NASPA Conference for those videos that we receive.

Route 99 to NASPA

Traveling to a conference can be uneventful. This year, we want to make it known that you’re in route to NASPA’s 99th annual conference. Wear your favorite college or university polo, t-shirt, hat, or tie (any logo apparel) as you make your way to San Antonio, Texas. Not only is it a great way to advertise for your institution, it is also a fun way to strike up a conversation and connect with colleagues from across the U.S. and around the world in an airport, on a train, in a taxi, or on the bus.
