Looking for a great way to get involved on campus?
The club fair is happening between Noon and 1 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 1 in The View Café. It will feature most of the 20 active student clubs on campus and give an opportunity for students to sign up.
Clubs will have representatives at the event to speak with students about information regarding each club's purpose and main activities during the semester. Students who attend can also enjoy a complimentary Rita’s Ice.
The campus has a record number of clubs to choose from this year, featuring a variety of interests, from computer gaming to anime to paranormal research, as well as more formalized organizations such as the Student Nurses Association and the Blue and White Society, which means everyone should be able to find at least one club that interests them.
If not, they can always think about forming their own - they just have to meet with Student Services Coordinator Julie Gilpatrick to discuss their idea and the process they have to go through to establish a new campus club.
One of the newer and more popular clubs on campus is the League of Extraordinary Gamers, which meets on a regular basis, and the Psychology Club, created just last year, has become one of the more involved clubs on campus. The Toastmasters Club, also started just last year, helps students build public speaking skills.
If students are looking for clubs that will look great on a resume, they may want to look into the Lion Ambassadors or the Community Service Club, which stress campus and community service and provide great opportunities for community outreach and involvement that can help students make professional contacts.
Now it is easier than ever to keep track of all the events happening with the clubs on campus by using OrgSync, a software application that allows students to not only easily access campus clubs and events, but track their involvement with them as well.
