2. Photo Contest

Hosting a photo contest is a fun way to bring people together. Everyone gets involved by taking photos at the event and uploading their entries online. Then, the winners are announced at the end of the party.

3. Online Game Night

Play online games such as Candy Crush Saga, Picitonary, Chess or Mario Kart. These types of games allow you to connect better, because you won’t be distracted by your phone calls and emails.

4. Trivia Game Show

Put on a trivia game show where every question has a tie-in with the virtual event.

For example, ask questions about references made during the event or about famous college alumni. Having multiple rounds or different formats makes it exciting.

Plus, it’s a lot of fun to watch others try to figure out the answers before anyone else does.
