University Preparedness Event

Hi everyone!

I'm looking at organizing a preparedness fair/expo at a university for National Preparedness Month. Just wondering if anyone has held such an event at a university and if so, what advice or suggestions do you have? What worked well in reaching out to college students?

In 2005 I created a University group under a Americorp grant. It had a group of students, staff, faculty and communiity members who formed a CERT team, a student SGA group and did events. They assist Emergency Managment drills (including doing a incident drill for the infirmery). It was fun and it was good because those students who partcipated to their training across the state and the country when they left.
