Hundreds of students gathered in the Quad this past Thursday to catch a glimpse of Club Rush. This event, hosted by the ICC (Inter-Club Council) helps to promote and showcase the dozens of clubs students at Saddleback have to offer.
“It’s our job to supervise, organize, and provide the funding for these clubs,” says ICC President Justin Huft, 19, psychology/sociology. “And this Club Rush has had the best turn-out that I’ve ever seen!”
Around twenty-five clubs attended the event such as CNSA, APAC, Sociology Club, Anime Club, Veteran’s Club, Anthropology Club, Helping Hands Club, and more. Each organization had their own table with unique props and attention-grabbers to demonstrate the principles of their clubs which included everything from photos to paper-mache manikins, to food and realistic skeletons.
“I love having a booth at Club Rush, it’s the best way to recruit new club members,” says Sociology Club representative Ashley McGrail, 20, communications. “It’s a great way to tell people what exactly we do in the club”.
In addition to browsing the club tables, attendees also received a free turkey lunch and had the opportunity to meet people with the same interests.
“It’s nice to get connected in a commuter school,” Lauren Nolte, 19, communication studies said. “Being in a club is a great way to raise awareness and show what one is passionate about.”
With the wide variety to choose from at Club Rush, it was nearly impossible not to find an interesting club to join.
