St. Kate’s calls its students to lead and influence and the Activities Fair gives them the opportunity to do just that.
Held on Thursday, Sept. 24, over 40 clubs and organizations gathered in the Rauenhorst Ballroom to showcase improvements, meeting dates and mission statements. Various interests were represented, ranging from Advocating for Animals, to Katie’s Hip Hop Club and the South East Asian Student’s Association (SEASA). Whether students want to get politically involved or simply make some new friendships, there was something for everyone.
“The Activities Fair is a great way to meet new people who are interested in the same things that you are,” Latavia Ford ’17 said.
While students were interested in getting involved and making friendships, club leaders were looking to spread their enthusiasm and gain support.
“We want to let the St. Kate’s community know that Chemistry Club is filled with women who are passionate about chemistry. Since last year, we did a lot of great things, and this year, we are planning on doing more awesome things,” Yenchi Tran ’16, Chemistry Club President, said.
If students were unable to attend the fair, a list of clubs can be found here. The Student Center and Activities (SCA) office maintains club mailboxes where students can leave a note if they are interested in a specific club. If the club does not reply to the student, the SCA office can contact club leaders directly.
The Activities Fair provided many new resources for students, and proved just how many ways there are to lead and influence here at St. Kate’s.
“I can say this with pride; I saw changes within Chemistry Club and the rewards came [within it]. I am very proud of this club and I am happy to be included in a club whose members who have so many good ideas and wonderful people who volunteer their time and efforts to rebuild a reputation for Chem Club,” Tran said.
