On Wednesday, Sept. 26, FRCC held an involvement fair at the Westminster campus. This event showcased the many ways students can get involved at FRCC. Clubs were the main focus of the event, but things such as basketball intramurals, Family Math Game Night, and campus tours were also presented to the attendees.
The event was handled by Student Life organizer, Melanie Rocha. She explained that the event’s purpose was to “bring awareness to the students that these clubs exist.”
The various clubs that attended the event were looking for new members to join and competed against each other for best booth design at the fair. The winning booth won a pizza party, and the students who visited the most places got to spin a prize wheel with gift cards to Amazon, footballs, and many other items.
Some of the standout booths included Technology Club, which featured Oculus Virtual Reality headsets, as well as a swath of other technological gadgets. Volleyball Club was another popular destination for the students who attended the fair, as it seemed that a lot of people were seeking out sports at FRCC. The club also managed to win the title of best booth design.
“The event is pretty effective with how it reaches out to students, and it’s the best way to display it,” said Volleyball Club president Maiger Lor.
Social media, as well as emailing students, were two alternative options to reach out to people in the future. Students can contact Student Life to find out more information about clubs, as well as how to create their own club.
