Wild U turns two! Wild University is the virtual online course platform and community created by Wild For Planners. Launched just last year (during a global pandemic), Wild U has provided a way for our community to connect and experience fun, new monthly content about planning, cooking, organizing, budgeting and so much more. Each month there is a new major and minor subject to “study” plus a library of ongoing content found in the Dip Llama Library. The private Facebook group (Llama Lounge) is where members get to watch lives, interact with their favorite “professors” (content creators), keep each other accountable and make new planner friends.
Year two is definitely going to be wild! We talked to Jazmine Franklin from TEAM Wild all about the exciting upcoming Sophomore Year at Wild U and some details about the Go Wild Conference happening in Anaheim this March. Listen to our chat below:
WHAT’S NEW FOR YEAR TWO
Sophomore year at Wild U will bring some exciting new updates and experiences!
Pep Rally & Spirit Wear – In September, to celebrate year two of Wild U, all founding members that renew their annual membership will be receiving and exclusive Wild U t-shirt and sticker sheet. November 1st kicks off “semester enrollment” which means the ongoing month by month registration will be transitioning to three months registration. Upcoming professors, majors and minors will be announced for the entire three months at the start of semester enrollment. Get ready to mark your planners with all the important dates. Plus, there will be a slight increase in price for new annual and monthly members to reflect the depth of content that is now available in the library for all new members coming in. But there is still two months to register and lock in the Founding Member rates and receive both the Founding Member Welcome Kit and Sophomore Spirit Kit.
