Clubs attract students at Activities Fair

Students walked around the quad to browse and sign up for clubs at Activities Fair during break Sept 16.

Each of the 72 clubs had a table set up where they displayed posters, sign-up sheets and often gave out treats as club leaders advertised to prospective members during the fair. The event is hosted annually by Prefect Council.

Clubs ranged from cultural clubs, like Indian Club and the Latino Culture Club, to math and science clubs, like Science Bowl and the Finance and Investment Club, to clubs supporting student outreach and activism, like Girls Learn International and the Environmental Club.

Some student organizations, like Community Council, also had tables for students to sign up.

Jason Gabaee ’15, leader of the Students Against Distracted Driving Club, was excited about advertising his club’s cause during break.

“[Distracted driving] is an often neglected issue that gets overlooked,” Gabaee said. “By shining light on it, we hope that we can save at least one life, and Activities Fair gets people interested and hopefully compels people to join [our club].”

Students who weren’t representing a club at a table roamed the quad to sign up for clubs.

“I signed up for the Leading Business Visionaries Club, Robotics Club and Boxing Club, so I will try them all and see which ones I like the best,” Natanael Carlos ’16 said.
