Blugold Organization Bash (B.O.B.) is an event held each semester for students to get to know the campus organizations. We had information for incoming freshmen and requested that they sign up for an email list to receive information about upcoming ALD-PES events and for a special invitation to our Freshman Study Bags event in December.
ALD-PES members are invited to cupcakes and free bowling at the BBC in honor of our birthday & ALD's 90th Anniversary! Our ALD chapter turned 42 years old on October 31, 2013! Also, our PES chapter turned 47 years old as of October 6, 2013.
Bags of candy are given out to students studying on campus around finals.
UW-Eau Claire ALD-PES: Dear Freshmen 2013
UW-Eau Claire ALD-PES paired with the UW-Eau Claire Freshmen Orientation Committee to create the Dear Freshmen campaign. We collected information, thoughts, advice and comments from current students, faculty, and professors on what they thought the incoming freshmen class should know about UW-Eau Claire before they started classes. We collected quotes through social media, email and setting a table up in the Davies Student Center.

2013-2014 Executive Board Retreat
The 2013-2014 Executive Board had a planning retreat at the beginning of the semester. At this retreat we did a team building activity, talked about the goals that we had for the semester and planned activities, socials, events, information sessions and some of induction.
Our goals for the year were…
- Work on recruitment of prospective members
- Increase member involvement
- Increase communication with members
- (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Google+)
We held a workshop on Faculty-Student Research. The workshop was presented by Office of Research and Sponsored Programs.
We held a Welcome Back to School Fall Mixer this year where we ate nachos and played outdoor games. One of the games we played was Kubb. Eau Claire is the Kubb capital of North America and the game is becoming very popular both in the community and on our campus so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to combine a piece of the community with our organization on campus. We also played bean bags and listened to music while we discussed upcoming events for the year.
