Our Interactive Student Development programs are designed to enhance individual and group development, forge stronger connections with classmates, strengthen your bonds, trust, and communication, and provide critical insights and applicable skill sets amongst your fellow students.

We've designed many interactive development programs, including Competition to Collaboration®, Igniting Team Performance, RA Training: Train the Trainer, Skill Sets for Success, and Total Recall. And, we deliver a wide variety of interactive personal and group development programs including Bridge to the Future, Pipeline, The Collegiate Canvas, and Speed Networking.

Your group will love the high-tech team building activities we've created using iPads® we supply, running event apps we've developed. Our experience and proprietary technology also allow us to deliver highly successful team building events with hundreds to thousands of students. Our needs assessment tailors your group's activities to achieve your school's desired outcome by customizing your program to fit your group's size, goals, and allotted time.

In this energetic, collaborative event, teams work together to build an actual bridge that has the strength to support the weight of the entire group. There are two unique aspects of this project: each section of the bridge will be an independent artistic representation of your participants' future mission and goals, AND the fundamental building materials of the structure are cardboard and duct tape!

In our fun, fast-paced challenge, collegiate teams will compete at an area with activity stations that cover various skill sets, which are essential for personal and professional development. While the participants are at a station, they won’t know what type of skill set is being taught, which prevents them from modifying their style of play to satisfy the skill set they think is being tested. Skills include Communication, Leadership, Organization, Teamwork, and Motivation.

Nothing says teamwork like a huge mural painted (and signed!) by your team! The perfect addition to any event, 50-100 (or more) people can be painters because all canvases are paint-by-number and painters (participants) can spend as little or as much time as they want with a brush. Each numbered container of paint represents a different color that corresponds to a number on your Collegiate Canvas, so the beauty and success of our final painting will be assured.

This engaging get-to-know-you event incorporates a series of fun and challenging icebreaker activities and discussion topics, conducted remotely. Small sub-groups will be formed and placed in virtual break-out rooms with a topic to discuss or to compete in a mini-challenge. After every break-out session, teams will return to the virtual “General Session” space to reconnect with the large group and the host. The entire group will play an interactive game together, and then the host will randomly split them into brand-new small sub-groups for the next break-out challenge. This process is repeated in rapid succession with new games and various enlightening discussions taking place time and again!
