Hailing from sunny Miami, Florida, Young Americans for Liberty at Florida International University had its first semester this past spring! This post is to showcase everything we got done as a new club.
We had our first tabling event the first week of the semester. Our surplus of materials got us plenty of attention, and the “Shortest Political Quiz” was a true hit! We had over 80 participants and got over 40 emails for our mailing list on our first day. Needless to say, we took the campus by storm.
Following this event, our first club meeting had roughly 10 members show up. We discussed our goals for the semester, offered more free material, and made sure everyone left well informed and with no questions in mind.
A personal favorite event we had was the handing out custom programs given to us by our Regional Director, Justin Greiss, for the Commander in Chief's visit to Florida International University to address the community on immigration reform. The program contained statistics on the increasing dissatisfaction with President Obama, particularly among Hispanic voters. These were a hit, and we overheard plenty of interesting dialogue going on among the attendees.
Following this, our Pie a Politician event brought laughs, new members, and well needed attention to the club. We held this in one of the most traveled through areas on campus, and made sure to reach out to anyone and everyone coming by.
