The primary objective of the social team is to provide opportunities for students to interact with each other, faculty, and staff in a non-academic atmosphere. These interactions help students stay socially active and aid them in developing friendships with their colleagues.
The social team provides several events each year that are generally not sponsored by the Student Government Association or other organizations. These include activities such as ballroom dancing, etiquette, bowling, progressive relaxation sessions, hypnosis, pet therapy sessions, principles of standup comedy, and picnic.
In May, 23 students, staff, and faculty participated in the first kayak trip hosted by the social team. They floated the Salt River, then stopped and enjoyed lunch and getting to know each other better.
