The 50th Anniversary Faculty Retreat will include two fun programs on Friday evening that we’re excited to tell you about!
Trivia: “Educated Guesses”
Get some faculty together and register a team for the group trivia event, “Educated Guesses.” Harper teams can represent programs, divisions, departments, committees, areas, or any official or unofficial group that you belong to at Harper. Each team will host one round of trivia, including questions they generate related to Harper, their group expertise, and random topics.
Ideal team size would be six members, but we will accommodate smaller or larger teams as well as individuals looking to join a team. Trivia teams should create a team name and indicate a captain and the group members’ affiliation on the registration form.
Team captains will receive confirmation of registration and will be asked to submit questions for the round that their team will host in advance of the event.
Talent: “Faculty’s Faculties”
Considering that the word “faculty” actually means an innate or acquired ability or talent, faculty are talented by definition! Sign up for the “Faculty’s Faculties” night and share your gifts of speaking, music, comedy, dance, art, or other creative expressions.
When registering, please indicate any equipment you will need for your act as well as an estimated length so that we can plan our evening line-up accordingly.
