Ideas for activities for a largeish group of faculty/students
March 28, 2011 7:08 PM Subscribe
I am on the planning committee of an annual event held by my grad program in which the students and faculty do various activities and performances, play games, and generally make fun of each other. I need some ideas, preferably involving laughter and/or making the faculty do slightly embarrassing stuff.

There are about 8 faculty and 30 students. We are renting out a fairly large room and have access to a a projector, a sound system, and a small amount of money to use to buy supplies. All attendees bring food, but there will be no alcohol.
Some past activities:
-Project runway- The students create (terrible) costumes for the faculty based on a theme they are given and the group chooses a winner
-Jeopardy- Faculty compete for candy
-Faculty skit- Faculty read from a script on the spot
-Faculty quiz- Group divides up into teams to try to fill out a multiple-choice quiz about faculty
As you can see, the goal is usually to use the faculty to make the students laugh. However, given that this is a grad program, the students are being constantly evaluated by the faculty, so it can't be anything too humiliating.
Any other suggestions? Bonus question: any ideas for silly party favors?
