Over 70 clubs were represented at last Wednesday’s Fall Club Fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the JAYwalk.
Each semester the Student Involvement Office hosts a club fair to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the different activities they are able to get involved in around campus throughout the year.
Clubs at the fair represented a variety of themes, including academics, politics, culture, faith, fine arts, fraternity and sorority life, leadership, health and wellness, literary publications, community service, spirit, and sports.
The fair is held mainly to help the new freshman class get involved on campus and explore the different options available. Most clubs represented had a sign-up sheet for people to leave their information. This year, to draw more people to the Club Fair, free ice cream was provided for all the students in attendance.
Sophomore Sophia Apostolou is a member of the Delta Delta Delta sorority and was attending the fair to support the organization. She said she thinks the event is good for new students.
“The club fair is a great opportunity for freshman and other students to get involved in the OWU community,” she said.
According to sophomore Jennifer Luckett said she thought the fair was “a great representation of all the different opportunities Ohio Wesleyan has to offer to get involved.”
Sophomore Emma Merritt said she thinks the Club Fair exposes students to opportunities that could be beneficial for them.
“It’s great to get involved in different activities on campus because you gain experience for different things outside the classroom and therefore when you graduate and start working, you will be more prepared,” she said.
