Our Social Events Committee is extremely enthusiastic about holding events that will excite and engage our HYPEsters!
The Social Events Committee is in charge of our monthly Get HYPEd networking events which happen at various locations in Hartford. They also choose and plan other activities for the HYPE membership, such as an outing to the Hartford Stage or cheering on UConn Hockey and the Hartford Yard Goats. They've created the HYPEr Active series that encourages HYPEsters to become active by going rock climbing or participating in a fitness class!
The Social Events Committee also finds committee members who are interested in hosting “Hanging Out With HYPE”, where the individuals will attend a fun community event and invites other HYPEsters to join them! Take a look at some of their most recent blog posts here.
In 2016, the Social Events Committee will be collaborating with other committees, young professional groups and colleges on various projects to engage more in the programs and events HYPE has to offer.
We meet once a month throughout the year, either in person or through conference call, and also, when needed, by email and Basecamp (a project management tool).
