It’s football szn which means it’s also tailgate szn! Both are super fun, classic American pastimes (Remember: National Tailgating Day is on September 7th). We want to help you put on the best resident events for this season because events are a fantastic retention strategy. Your residents want to feel a sense of community, belonging, and hey, you’ve got to pamper them every once in a while to show them you love having them - otherwise, how will they know? This is a great event for student housing, especially if you match it up with the school football games!
Here’s how to throw a great football tailgate or watch party:
CHOOSE YOUR DESIGNS
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Plenty of food
Hot dogs, burgers, chips, dips, soda, beer, etc. (you know, all the classic game day foods)
This would be a great time to give away promotional branded swag with your community’s info - drink cozies, t-shirts etc.
Check out a few of our Amazon Prime favs below.
BRING IT TO LIFE
Prep for the event:
Post the digital invitation on your social media platforms and print it and post it around your community/hand it out to residents.
Make sure you’ve got all the food and drinks for the event. Easy finger foods work best!
If it’s a watch party - make sure you can watch the game on whatever TV(s) you have available and make sure you know which channel the game is on.
The day of the event:
Post your social media squares and IG story online so your residents know that it’s the big day!
Post pictures throughout the event for those that couldn’t make it to keep up with the fun online.
