Over the period, hall weeks have become the means to which students just want to have fun and while away the time.
Whiles others cannot wait to cheer their favorite artist put on the bill for performance, others also scout for “Hajia’s Waakye” that is only available during hall weeks. That is acceptable but…
What if I told you there’s a lot more to benefit? What if I told you there are opportunities you don’t even consider? What if I told you there are so many chances you miss out?
Here are 5 top strategies to make the most of.
It is important to open up and get to know people from time to time. Lately, social capital, if not entirely plays a very significant role in the development and exposure of the individual. Take the step, reach out, go all out and interact with people cautiously with the idea of chancing on probably just one person who could be a possible business partner.
This won’t be too much of a task I suppose. Go get it!
#4. Cop a stand if you have the means as a student
Use such a platform to showcase your business, or display a talent that ordinarily, you can not get access to. Student entrepreneurs should never miss out on an opportunity like this if there are the means to make it work. This will not only be lucrative for you but expose you to possible business opportunities.
#3. Engage all round in activities
All through the week, make sure to engage extensively in all activities on the program’s line up. This is because you get the opportunity to develop skills, learn new things and of course, make the best use of time profitably. This includes seminars that are often put on the lineup and a whole lot more
#2. Have a spending plan
Being stranded after the week’s celebration is real. Now, imagine not being able to board a shuttle because you went spending impulsively. You feel attacked I guess… it is essential that we have a spending plan to avoid inconveniences during and after hall week celebrations.
On the other hand, in as much as you are prone to overspending, there’s also that factor that can make available to you the best commodity at an affordable price. And this factor is having a lot of vendors selling similar or the same goods at the same time. Competition compels these vendors to bid your patronage by reducing prices. Good news after all
#1. Be security Cautious
Be your own security! Be selective with places you want and my not want to be during the celebration. As much as we may not want to overlook, it is true that people from all over including non-students join in the festivities. Some get wasted, others rowdy and so on. Protect yourself and stay safe.
After all that has been said, I’m certain your enthusiasm towards hall week celebrations has seen a turn.
This piece comes as a guide to ensure that students understand the essence of hall weeks, as it is often the case that students lack the intent to which these programs are organized.
