Phired Up’s Social Excellence Interns

Phired Up has been working with a LOT of very talented undergraduate students this year. We have at least three separate teams of interns working on important and fun projects to support our cause of helping fraternities and sororities grow.

Take a moment to read here about another group of fantastic students: Our Social Excellence Interns.

ResizeImage.aspxOne of our most fun and popular products has been our “Social Excellence Dare Cards” (check them out here). These little cards put learning Social Excellence into real life challenges that push individuals to actually TRY to be Socially Excellent. The Phired Up team built 20 dares originally, and now a group of college students, led by Phired Up’s KJ McNamara, are working to grow that list of dares to 100! They’re writing the dares, and more importantly, TRYING the dares themselves.

Innovative projects like this make us at Phired Up so proud. The students working on this project are doing important work that will impact thousands of people who experience learning through the tools their creating. Meet this fun team of interns below!
