Defining what your project is about is the first step for every creator. What are you raising funds to do? Having a focused and well-defined project with a clear beginning and end is vital. For example: creating a one act play as opposed to starting a campus acting troupe. The project finishes when the play is done, but this would not be the case for a group. There is no end, just an ongoing effort. With a precisely defined goal, expectations are transparent for doth donors and beneficiaries alike. Donors can judge how realistic the project’s goals are, as well as the student’s ability to complete them. For students, the practice of defining a project’s goal establishes the scope of the endeavor, often an important step in the creative process.
MAKE SURE YOUR PROJECT HAS CLEAR EXPECTATIONS AND GOALS!
Blue Start is open only to finite projects conducted by a student, and if a student wishes to create a reoccurring event, then he/she should approach LUCC. LUCC can then determine if the student should create a new campus group or join an existing campus group that can add the event idea to its itinerary.
