How should we commemorate the centenary of the founding of the university? We have been given quite a large budget to pay for some events.
We should certainly hold a big party for the professors and students. We could have a firework display.
Do you think that we should invite alumni and former professors?
If we do, too many people might attend. Perhaps we should invited all of them, but make a small charge to attend.
Good idea. We should also hold a series of presentations. We could have presentations on the history of the university, the courses we offer, and our links with other universities.
Cool! I think we could also have presentations by former students on how their experience here helped them in their lives.
We could have another on the successes of graduates from here.
I think that we could also produce some merchandise for the centenary-you know, T-shirts, mugs, plates, pens, and things like that.
That’s an excellent idea. Hopefully, we would be able to make a profit! A few professors and students are writing a book on the history of the university.
I’m looking forward to reading that. We could have book signings by famous professors an alumni.
A group of students from the art and music faculty are producing a short film.
I’m sure that will be very popular… OK, let’s think about how we can put these ideas into practice.
