By Stephanie South, Program Associate, AASCU

Happy #ADPFF, all!

We’re coming to you from back in the District of Columbia today, but we just can’t seem to get over just how much #ADPTDC13 rocked our last week so…

I bring to you some of my personal favorite #ADPTDC13 tweets and pictures (full disclosure: there is a picture featuring me–that I didn’t take or post–and one of my own tweets that highlights how great our #ADPTDC students are).

From @jillgately: Testing out the photo booth props for Saturday night. They work! @sroshelle #adptdc13 http://instagram.com/p/aM4sEGpsUY/

From @DocPolitics: Re civic engagement “I’ve been forced to get more out of my life” yes!!! Best way to wrap this year’s conference #adptdc13

And, we didn’t get the chance to tweet this one but…How awesome is this shot of Amee Bearne, The Democracy Commitment’s National Coordinator, as she gets a spare in Wii the People bowling?

#ADPFF: 5.31.13

By Stephanie South, Program Associate, AASCU

SuitcaseNext Friday we will be with you in the flesh to wish you a happy end of the week (and, students, there will also be some awesome stuff happening for you if you missed it yesterday), but in preparation for our #ADPTDC13 meeting in Denver, we wanted to share with you a few items on our packing list this #ADPFF:

  • Business Cards (in case you want to give someone your deets)
  • Campus Schwag (show your school spirit on Saturday; everybody will be doing it!)
  • Cowboy Boots (um, because it’s Colorado, and I am bringing mine–I’m a native, so I am not stereotyping)
  • iStuff/Other SmartPhone (bring your iPhone, iPad, or whatever device you can download the mobile meeting app ont0–stay tuned for more info!)
  • Umbrella (apparently we could get rain next #ADPFF; I recommend being prepared for any type of weather because in Colorado it can change faster than you can say “Democracy”)

You? Me? Denver? Next Friday? See you then!

#ADPTDC13: Students-Only Activities in Denver

Attention all ADP Students!

If you’re not already stoked about #ADPTDC13 (and we have already given you five reasons you should be), we wanted to let you know about one more thing: we’ve assembled some activities just for you!

Read below to find out more about two students-only sessions and a PAR-TAY!

FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 2013

3:45 p.m. – 5 p.m.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, But a Video is Worth a Thousand Stories: A Two-Day Film Workshop (students only; RSVP required)
Colorado Ballroom, Salon B
The filmmaker of The Democracy Commitment’s newest initiative, Civic Chronicles, is holding a two-day workshop on telling stories of civic engagement through the medium of film. The workshop will be interactive, engaging, fun and creative. Students and participants will leave with a basic knowledge of film theory, cinematography, editing and the art of storytelling. They will also get to apply what they have learned by creating a short film in a variety of styles and genres to their choice. Participants need to bring along their own DSLRs, handheld cameras, film equipment, and/or smart phones.

Facilitator: Marlo Alvarado Custodio, Filmmaker

If you are a student from an ADP/TDC member institution that is interested in attending this workshop and would like to reserve your spot, email Marlo at Marlo.Custodio@gmail.com. Please only RSVP if you can attend both workshop sessions. This workshop will be capped at 20 participants.

5 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
ADP National Student Advisory Council Info Session
Denver Ballroom, Suites I/II

The American Democracy Project is all about by the people, for the people, and it is for exactly that reason, as well as the fact that ADP is an AASCU program that is primarily student-centered, that we are in the process of establishing a National Student Advisory Council, which will be comprised of current undergraduate/graduate students at AASCU member institutions participating in the American Democracy Project. We will also be soliciting applications for an Executive Board that will assist the ADP National Manager in steering the larger council. Come hear more about what we are looking to do and how you can get involved and, in true ADP fashion, tell us how we can better inform and engage you! This session will be valuable for both faculty and students.

5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m.
ADP/TDC Student Mixer (students only)
Denver Ballroom, Suites III/IV

The American Democracy Project and The Democracy Commitment recognize that this year’s annual meeting will host the biggest cohort of students ever in attendance, and we want to celebrate that fact—plus give you the chance to meet your peers from across the country, swap ideas and contact information, and have a little fun on a Friday night. After attending the ADP National Student Advisory Council Info Session, stick around for food, fellowship and fun!  Mocktails and giant bean bag chairs anyone?

 

SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 2013

10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, But a Video is Worth a Thousand Stories: A Two-Day Film Workshop
(continued from Friday)
Molly Brown

The filmmaker of The Democracy Commitment’s newest initiative, Civic Chronicles, is holding a two-day workshop on telling stories of civic engagement through the medium of film.

Also, keep in mind, even though it will not be a students-only event, the closing reception on Saturday is going to be a seriously good time—we’ve rented space at The Tavern Downtown in the LoDo (Lower Downtown) district of Denver. There will be a photo booth (complete with props) and a DJ and dance floor, as well as delicious food and drinks. The Tavern is not only right across from the baseball field but has made multiple top-ten lists for its great rooftop.

We are looking forward to painting Denver red, white and blue next week and wish you all a happy end of the academic year and safe travels!
