This is a time for everyone in the group to reconnect and have fun together before focusing on the outward mission at the pizza party and for the rest of Kickoff week.  This time is set aside for your groups, but feel free to invite new people you have met during the week.

Friday, August 19st

Plan something to do with your engage group on campus.  This should be something pre-planned that you can invite people to while you are at the pizza party the night before.  (ex. At the Pizza Party “Hey, it was great meeting you!  Me and a bunch of friends are playing kickball on the drillfield tomorrow at 2 PM, do you want to come? ….Sweet!  Let me get your number so we can find each other.”
