Looking for a creative idea for "Week of Welcome"? We dug out an old bulletin board, found some maps, made a sign, bought some map pins-- and Tada! We also put out some little sticky notes (the page marker kind), and were surprised to see that students not only identified their hometowns, but their names as well. This is a great idea for breaking the ice with students (we put it near the reference desk), and also to distract students when standing in line (this just happened to be near the line that always forms for new I. D. cards). Take a look:
Note: International map on opposite side of bulletin board.
