Be sure to check out the requirements below.


Tuesdays: Preparing for Role Play

During this time, you’ll come together as a group with your instructors and design your game play. You’ll receive your topic, and make decisions together about what to include, and how to accomplish your tasks and goals.

Later in the week (Wednesday or Thursdays) Live Action Role Play

Role play your game! Think about what you’re learning while having fun (of course, this is college!) because you’ll want to remember it to use the skills and tools again.

Before the next Tuesday planning session

You will reflect on how it went, what XP you’ve gained, what tools you found that you want to keep, and what you want to discard. You can reflect with others in the Residence Hall who are also in the class, or do the reflection on your own. Just like life, you will have options!
