Raiso grew a lot this winter. Since week 1,
On top of this, we've seen a 25% increase in our slack community, and a 10% increase in our listserv subscribers. With this, all inclusive, Raiso is probably the fastest growing student organization on campus.
One of the big wins this quarter has been securing departmental funding through McCormick. Up until now, Raiso's been self-funded by exec. on a reimbursement basis. This funding allotment will help us grow in ways we've been unable to before.
With this new funding, we're going to focus strongly on community development, including but not limited to:
We're also going to aim to direct more traffic to our website by posting more events there, and moving our newsletter from substack "in-house."
While we're really thrilled with our growth this winter, investment into our community this spring will be vital to maintain our longevity, and to define our culture, in a time where we'll be seeing our first presidential changing-of-the-guard. We're excited to get started, and see all of you in the spring!
