3. I'm in the Band!!


During AMPED we use some cool lingo so only people on the in know what's going on. Here's your cheatsheet so you can remember:

# Rockstars: all first-year students in attendance

# Fans: student staff (dons, peer leaders and front desk assistants FDAs) who lead the rockstars from one presentation to another, give answers to questions and encourage initiative

# Band Managers: dons in charge making sure that the show goes on by leading their respective committees. These are 4 dons: Hannah (programming), Ally (logistics), Michelle (promotions) and Rae (communications). They run meetings, keep track of tasks and deadlines and do all the background work for the conference.

# Committees: dons that are given tasks by the Band Managers to help in the running of the conference

# Presenters: student leaders that are meant to help rockstars work on an aspect of leadership that fits their individual style

4. What are some examples of previous presentations you ask? / Via
