EdD Students enjoyed being together at Game Night – a virtual social event

On October 16th, the second EdD virtual social event brought students together for “Game Night,” which included several rounds of Pictionary. This event was hosted by the program’s graduate assistants to provide entertaining opportunities for the EdD students and alumni to get connected and have fun with their colleagues during these challenging and difficult times. The Kinesiology EdD program began these virtual socials last month with Trivia night, and will continue virtual social opportunities on a monthly basis for the rest of the academic year. 

Game Night was a success – there were many laughs and enjoyable conversations during the event. One of the students shared how she was so stressed and  was thankful she attended because it really helped her relax – “It was just what I needed after a long week. Another student commented, “I will definitely invite other friends for the next social.” One of the most enjoyable moments during the meeting was when some of the students’ children participated with their parents in the games, especially since they were the ones who could really figure out the Pictionary drawings. It was a great experience for attendees to meet a mix of students and alumni and share happiness with colleagues. Future socials will be hosted -including other game nights, yoga, and more.

Thanks for everyone’s participation and engagement in this event. We are looking forward to meeting with you again in the upcoming social events.
