Last Day in Indy!

On the last day in Indianapolis, we worked with other volunteers for the Final Four Dribble. We helped set up the tables and t shirts for registration and helped get the streets ready for the dribblers. This day in particular was a great learning experience for students because it was more hands on with organization, communication, and management. After getting everything set up and all the kids checked in, the dribble was ready to begin! Soon after our shift was over, we began our long two day journey home. Luckily we made it back in time to watch the Championship game at home!

Day 3 in Indianapolis

Day 3 in Indy consisted of Fan Fest! We started off the day participating in Fan Fest, which is an ultimate fan experience with games, activities, prizes, and give aways. Different sponsors and partners with the NCAA set up booths and venues for guests to hangout and play. After having a blast participating in the fun, we began our shift working it. Students helped out sponsors running events, keeping things orderly while still encouraging fans to have a good time, checking for wristbands and waivers, and giving out stuff to guests in the convention center.

Day 2 in Indianapolis

Our second day in Indianapolis started downtown. We walked through the Hall of Champions and saw the history of the NCAA and collegiate athletics and their stars. After touring through, we got ready for our first volunteer shift. We were scheduled to work the March Madness Music Festival Block Party, with performances by Cold War Kids, Weezer, and Imagine Dragons. Students were placed in different areas around the park welcoming and assisting guests at entrances, floating through the crowds for supervision and security purposes, and helping guests at information booths set up in the park.
