Florida Atlantic University's YAL chapter is off to a great start!
Spring 2017 is all about recruitment for us here at FAU. Once a week, we set up a table on the Breezeway, a centrally located strip of campus that gets a lot of foot traffic. So far, we have seen great success from our efforts, most notably our free speech wall. We have not yet received funding from our university for things such as picture stands and large boards, so we improvised and used several large poster boards to create a wall-like structure mounted onto a table, next to a table with our YAL recruitment gear. Students enjoy stopping by our table to read what others have written. Content varies from political opinions, social activism, and many, many pop culture references, such as a very large “Cash me outside, how bow dah?”
We have greatly enjoyed our time talking to prospective members on campus, and we look forward to our first informational meeting!
