Deck Out Your Alumni With Custom Sunglasses

Your alumni are your most loyal supporters. It is your job to cultivate and encourage your alumni community to stay involved, stay connected, and stay dedicated. Events  like homecoming and alumni weekend, affinity programs, and commemoration  celebrations are perfect ways to maintain positive relationships with your alumni community. At College Glasses, we think that custom sunglasses are the best gift you can use to cultivate your community.

5 Accessories that Every Man Should Have

Every Greek man knows how to look good. But do you know the basics of men’s fashion? Here are five simple accessories that are functional, fashionable and will never go out of style.

1. Wallet
A mans most used item. A wallet neatly stores all your cash cards and important IDs in one easy to access place. A leather wallet is perfect for a classy, yet casual look.

2. Belt
A black or brown leather belt is a must have. Choose one with a classic buckle so can be dressed up or dressed down, perfect for any occasion. When dressing up, a belt should match your shoes in color and style

3. Watch
Both practical and stylish. Find something classic that you absolutely love. It’s best to pick out something that can be dressed up or worn with jeans; leather or metal straps are always a good choice.

4. Sunglasses
Sunglasses aren’t just for the beach. Every man should keep a pair in his car. They are practical all year long and go with any outfit.

5. Phone Case
You carry your phone with you all the time. A nice phone case not only protects your phone from cracks and scratches but it also adds personal style to an every day tech accessory.

Creativity Draws New Fans

Creativity Draws New Fans
And Keeps Them Coming Back

Having a winning sports team may draw a crowd, but doesn’t always fill the stadium.  When fans have the option of watching the game from home or have a limited budget to spend on entertainment, Athletic Departments need to get creative and find new ways to draw in fans. Here are three ways to creatively market your athletic team.

Giveaways: Promotional product giveaways are one of the best ways to encourage fans to attend an event. You can do something as simple as giving away team t-shirts to the first 1,000 to come into the stadium or as creative as parachuting team sunglasses into the crowd. Fans will leave that game with something that ensures that they will be reminded of their experience.

Theme Nights: Here in Philadelphia, the Phillies have Dollar Dog Night, which draws huge crowds every season. Dollar Dog Night is a way for fans to save on stadium food and enjoy the classic experience of having a hotdog at the baseball game. The Phillies also hold Alumni Night when past Phillies players attend games and have meet and greets with fans.

Ticket Packages: It’s easy to offer student ticket packages that include every game, but why not offer mini packages as well? Packages made available to community members as well as students can be more targeted and cost effective. Tailor weeknight ticket packages to young professionals looking for a fun night out, and weekend game packages to families with children.
