At Catholic University we did a few things to gather folks together and having fun in the workplace:
1. We have staff pot lucks after staff meetings at least once a semester.
Each person brings something and we have a nice long lunch.
2. The Director plans a surprise luncheon that is catered once a year.
3.The staff tries to get together on Fridays at the grad dining hall – it is an open invitation for all to get together.
4. The also have Professional Staff Appreciation Day around the time of RA appreciation which is planned as a surprise by the Director.
