We Went to College & So Can YOU Display

This year at my school, we have a bulletin board dedicated to fun facts about our school staff family.  The bulletin board is changed every 2 months and we have a "theme" each time around.  This time it was my turn, so I suggested a college themed board.  Here's what I did:

-I cut out the words "We Went to College & So Can YOU!" using my Cameo Silhouette Paper cutter  (at the suggestion of blogger bestie Danielle from The School Counselor Blog I got a grant from my school's PTA to get one, they are absolutely awesome for creating printables).  I used the font Simplicity for this cut out.  I glued the letters onto paper for backing for the bulletin board. 

Letters made using Cameo Silhouette
-Each staff member emailed a picture of themselves in either their college t-shirt, hat, holding a sign, or anything that represented the college/university that they attended.  I also offered to take a picture of staff members in their shirts for the bulletin board (which worked out great). 

-To enhance the pictures and add the staff's name and university, I used the photo editing site Picmonkey.  I used the font "Freshman" and added a border of the school's colors for each picture (for the schools I didn't know their colors, I used Google to find out).

Here's me, I actually took this pic on the campus of my university,  I was super excited to go back to campus!

The cool thing is that our staff had some very creative pictures representing their university...

I LOVE this pic!

Here's the finished product.

What a great way to showcase your "college & career" wide.

  1. Great Idea! I did the same thing last year :)

  2. What a neat idea. We do something similar at our school. We have a "College Day" and ask all of the staff to come to school wearing a sweatshirt or T-shirt from a college/university/branch of military that they attended. We try to make it fun and encourage students to ask all of the staff questions about their career path or what college was like.
