OPTION PLAY is a great way of getting freshman to talk about how to navigate life while living on campus, and being a successful college student.
As an RA, I was able to observe not just new students playing a game, but see what they knew about handling the challenges of being at college.
I love card games. My residents will love playing this as an icebreaker.
I like how the game sparks conversations.
As a first generation student, through playing OPTION PLAY I came to understand I could get academic help even if I didn’t think I needed it.
The ease of play for OPTION PLAY is great; it is so player friendly! Its scenarios are very realistic and relatable to current situations that happen with students. OPTION PLAY allows students to think about how their actions relate to outcomes.
There were a lot of situations that people don’t talk about or that they don’t think to mention, that will become a big thing in your everyday life. So, I think it made me really think about all the aspects of living with people, being on campus, choosing my own classes, and everything like that.
These issues address problems that students don’t often have the personal tools to address in a way that is helpful to them.
I think it provides a really straightforward, entertaining way of dealing with problems students might encounter.
There’s so many activities you do during college orientation that are sort of meaningless and don’t really help you deal with what real life experiences. This actually helps you get ready for real life experiences, or what life is going to be like in college.
