Icebreaker Readiness

Campus conversation

During the first few weeks of school, and every new organization meeting, you will be asked to participate in ice breaker activities to get to know everyone better. Whether you relish or reject these moments to talk about yourself, they will be a staple of your college experience. Lean into the discomfort and take a few minutes to prepare your answers.

FUN FACTS 
Have at least three fun facts at the ready.

TWO TRUTHS & A LIE 
This game has you share three items - two that are true, one that is a lie - and challenges the group to determine which is the lie. Make sure your delivery doesn’t give it away!

A FOOD WITH THE SAME FIRST LETTER AS YOUR NAME
A classic name game. Are you Avocado Ashley? Roti Rachel? Hotdog Henry? This game is surprisingly effective.

AN ADJECTIVE WITH THE SAME FIRST LETTER AS YOUR NAME  
See above. Are you Creative Cathy? Cool Curtis? Casual Cornelius?

FAVORITE THINGS 
Be ready to share (and perhaps defend) your favorite: color, book, movie, TV show, thing about New Orleans, etc.

WHY TULANE?
