PLAYFAIR, winner of the NACA Novelty Entertainer Of The Year Award is the #1 freshman orientation program on college campuses today. PLAYFAIR reaches out to audiences, celebrating the diversity of each and everyone of us in an atmosphere of non-competitive play allowing new students to meet one another in a very positive and supportive environment. It has been proven that laughter and play help the body stay healthy. Playfair has taken their college show and brought it into corporate America. Playfair has been featured in People magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and featured on a PBS special. PLAYFAIR is a great program to have outside, it works equally as well in a large indoor space. Give your incoming freshman class a gift they will always remember.

PLAYFAIR is the most popular campus attraction in history for New Student Orientation Programs.

2020 PLAYFAIR ONLINE! Video shows transition from live to Virtual


“Thank you for such a great show today. Lexi and Fran were absolutely great and were so good with our students. The students who participated were fully engaged. I popped into a bunch of breakout rooms and the students were definitely into it! Great job in the transition of Playfair from in person to virtual. It’s a great event!” Stephen T. Cucchiara Director | Student Activities & Community Service University of Colorado, Colorado Springs

“I wanted to reach out and thank you all for creating such an amazing virtual experience. Our students had a BLAST! They are still talking about how much fun they had.” Ethan Miller, Program Coordinator, Student Involvement Lindenwood University

I just wanted to thank you both so very much for Playfair this weekend. It was, dare I say, TOO good! Our first year students loved the experience and bonded REALLY quickly. A very large group of them wound up playing kickball outside until after 2 a.m., which was a great sign of them making new friends, and is totally thanks for Playfair. The Residence Life staff in the building while students were participating said that the students were very engaged and loved the experience. Thank you so, SO much. In a year where we must find ways to bring people together without bringing them physically together, and where the importance of connections with others has never been more important, I’m so grateful to have you! Director of Campus Life-St. Vincent College

 New Student Orientation went online for the 2020-21 season. With Playfair students had fun. 

We will return to live events but until we do so, join the hundreds of campuses that created community online with PFO- Playfair ONLINE.

This was the first entering class in history that missed both their Prom and Graduation. After weeks and months of enforced isolation, the new student class of 2020-21 were hungry for connection, community and belonging.  Orientation was so much fun and special for them with Playfair Online! 

Playfair is the #1 attraction for New Student Orientation, invited to over 400 campuses each fall. This season we were at 300 ONLINE events.

Playfair Online is part of the solution to help your students become — and stay — connected.

Playfair Online is a high-spirited, high-energy event that allows your new students to safely engage and laugh with one another as a large group, as well as in many quick-changing breakout rooms. Your students will feel a part of an exciting new campus community. It’s team building, it’s comedy, and it’s lots of fun!

Your students will engage in: 

• Mental and physical challenges as they play games that bring them closer together.

 • Solving puzzles that help them learn about the campus, and even join in a large-group dance party!                                                                                                                           

• Discovering the many things they have in common as they work together on ever-changing team building activities.                                                                                                                   

• Creative challenges to create rhyming poems on the fly.

• Performing physical challenges in unison with their virtual teammates.

• Sharing their favorite pop culture moments in a truly unique format that produces lots of high-spirited laughter.

Give your new student class a gift they will long remember — Playfair Online, featuring Playfair’s signature brand of upbeat community-building interactions. 

It’s time to have fun together! It’s time to make new friends! 

It’s time to reach out virtually and celebrate the class of 2024.
