We started this school year with a jam-packed house at the Nest. Students we had already developed relationships with filled the place, bringing in some of their friends. When the room was already at capacity, an entire troop of freshmen marched in. We had to serve them brownies and cookies outside the room with promises of future activities that they could be a part of. The food was a hit, the games were a blast, and new friendships were forged all over the house. Parties like this one are a great way to make a big splash in student’s lives and keep them coming back for more.
