InkwellThe purpose of our club is to connect people across campus. We have a more specific goal of providing a safe space for friend-making that encourages people who are more introverted or have difficulty making friends. Through our ghost letters program, we facilitate a 12-week letter exchange between two anonymous students on campus. Inkwell works to motivate these ghosts ('ghost letters' members) through the use of prompts, fun letter-hunting games, and the ongoing mystery of who one's mystery ghost friend could be! Additionally, Inkwell hosts weekly events that consist of unique games, mysteries to be solved, outdoor adventures, team-building events, and more! Each weekly event is inspired by a randomly specific person that either Jeapers or Jebus (our ghost mascots) possessed at some point in the last century. Our goal is to host events that are unpredictably unique and immersive. RIC is a commuter school, which is great. But this also means that a lot of students don't know each other and aren't involved on campus. Inkwell events aspire to connect the students of RIC, aiming to build a strong student community. We want our ghost letters program to empower the quieter voices on campus, encouraging the growth of strong friendships.inkwell@so.ric.eduComing Soon!@inkwell_ric
