Drexel University: ASCEND Networking Casino Event

Drexel University: ASCEND Networking Casino Event Drexel Logo 150x150Drexel University’s student organization, ASCEND, reached out to us for help in their efforts to plan a networking event like no other before.  They informed us that they wanted an event that was lively and fun.  Their previous events had lower attendance than they had hoped and they felt by deviating from the traditional dry format they could boost attendance and ultimately the successfulness of their networking efforts.

In addition to their time the local business professionals donated their time and money for a “Networking 1 on 1” meeting at Starbucks.  We ultimately decided a Casino event would best meet their needs; complete with food and drinks, as well as music mixes we provided to enrich the environment.  Networking coffee dates were auctioned off at the end of the night using the student’s casino winnings.

So on the night of Friday, October 3rd, in LeBow Hall the Casino party took place.  There were almost 100 people in attendance playing The Big Money Wheel, Blackjack, Poker, and Roulette tables.  Students were eager to familiarize themselves with the Casino games, and our dealers were just as excited to coach them.  When they were not giving advice on the games our dealers were interacting with the guests, joking around, and encouraging everyone to get to know one another.  The blackjack and poker tables seemed to be a crowd favorite.  Most students in attendance tried them all before settling in with their favorite game.

When the night ended, the leader of the organization announced that the event was a great success and that his members could look forward to similar exciting styles of meetings.  Continuing to pursue their goal to bridge the worlds of the Drexel students with the local businesses they could gain employment with in the future.   Several of the guests went up to our dealers and thanked them for their work and said they had an awesome time.
