Spirit Information

Roll Call. Each institution will create a one minute or less skit/dance that fits our theme “Turning the Tide”.  We encourage roll calls to be interactive and engaging through dance, acting, costumes, props, etc.  The roll call will be performed in a front of the room.  If sound is required, please email NCHORA2018@gmail.com  by November 1st.

 Banner. Each institution will design a PowerPoint Slide that best represents their school’s pride for RA Drive In and the theme ‘Turning the Tide’.   The banner should include the name of your institution, RA Drive In 2018, and the theme ‘Changing the Tide”.  The format should be in PDF. Digital Banners must be emailed by November 1st NCHORA2018@gmail.com.

Swap Shop. We ask that you bring t-shirts, giveaways, or items for your university to swap, share, trade, and distribute during the Swap Shop hour at the RA Drive in Conference.

Clothespins. As part of the spirit of the conference, we ask that each delegation makes decorated clothespins to trade and share throughout the conference as part of our spirit component.


Since Hurricane Florence has impacted several of our fellow North Carolinians including members of our campus communities, the RA Drive-In Conference would like to do a large collaborative philanthropy project that would include giving several types of donations to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief program.

We ask that all attending institutions do some type of donation drive through their housing programs, so they can bring those items to the conference. Institutions can decide what they would like to bring and have full autonomy over their drive. Items that we would like donated include: non-perishable food and toiletries. If institutions are interested in doing monetary donations, we will also accept those too, as the Red Cross can buy items they need.

We anticipate having a representative from the American Red Cross speak during our philanthropy session about the importance and impact of volunteering time and resources to Disaster Relief. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please contact the Conference Committee at NCHORA2018@gmail.com
