List of On Campus Event Ideas

The purpose of this guidance is to provide HEI partners with ideas for how to engage K-12 students more broadly with the HEI community.  This list is curated from practices shared by current HEI tutoring programs in local K-12 districts.  Depending on the design of your program and your HEI campus, some of these ideas may be more relevant to your context than others. 

  • Invite tutees to participate in campus tours 
  • Host student athlete “Meet and Greets” 
  • Host an on-campus Read-a-Thon - this can also serve as a fundraising project
  • Invite tutees to on-campus seasonal programming 
  • Invite tutees to attend an on-campus movie night with snacks/pizza 
  • Invite participating K-12 schools to partner with the HEI on service/volunteer projects (e.g., food drive)
  • Host an on-campus day outside with yard games 
  • Invite tutees to attend an HEI sporting event
