If so, I would love to talk to you about the Stack Exchange Ambassadors program. Our goal is to get students and teachers involved in promoting Stack Exchange EL&U. Basically, Stack Exchange wants to sponsor study breaks, research meetings, or social events for academic groups by providing free food and Stack Exchange gear. We're looking for people in the English community who want to organize these events and represent Stack Exchange to their classmates/students.

If you are interested, please respond to this post or email academics@stackexchange.com.

Note: this is also happening on

I'm currently an American studies student and I'm always up for free food, but I'm not too keen on organizing a StackExchange themed event.

What I would consider doing without much hesitation, though, is pass a leaflet around. I could also imagine the Uni staff to welcome the information, and pass some on as well.

My idea would be something that is, say, A5 big, and contains everything important about the SE model (also the CC-Wiki model and the free-ness of it all; ideally if it had to convince me, also a paragraph about how the whole thing finances itself, because there is no free lunch) and the specific site in a nutshell. It would also be cool if it had the site's design.

Update: This has now materialized! And it looks great.

  • Thanks for the ideas! I will email you so we can discuss. – Lauren Nov 10 '11 at 20:27
  • Did the leaflet ever materialize? – Moshe Nov 27 '11 at 21:57
  • @Moshe yes, it did! Looks fine, too. Haven't printed it out yet though. Lauren, is it available in a public place? – Pekka 웃 Nov 27 '11 at 21:58
  • Pinging @Lauren so she gets notified too. Because you can't notify two people in one comment, because that apparently would create more noise – Pekka 웃 Nov 27 '11 at 21:59
  • Heh, thanks @Pekka. I'm trying to get one going for my English class's pre-final discussion group. – Moshe Nov 27 '11 at 22:08
  • @Moshe you got mail – Pekka 웃 Nov 27 '11 at 22:10
  • @Pekka Hrm... Not seeing anything. – Moshe Nov 27 '11 at 22:15
  • @Pekka - The only email I have in my spam is from someone claiming to be Col. Gaddafi's son. – Moshe Nov 27 '11 at 22:18
  • @Moshe strange! But maybe it'll arrive with a delay, I've had similar issues recently. To speed things up: pekkagaiser.com/stuff/english-leaflets.pdf – Pekka 웃 Nov 27 '11 at 22:19
  • @Pekka - Looks awesome, thanks! – Moshe Nov 27 '11 at 22:22
  • @Moshe yeah, doesn't it! It's really nice work. – Pekka 웃 Nov 27 '11 at 22:23
