On Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Inter-Club Council will host its second Club Rush to encourage students to become more involved on campus. Clubs will have booths set up for prospective new members.
“The first Club Rush was mainly to give the clubs a chance to publicize their club, purposes, events, etc.,” said Justin Huft, ICC president, said. “This next Club Rush is more of a social gathering. It will include some food, free giveaways, and more of an opportunity for the clubs to explore their creativity and get their name out there more.”
The Oct. 6 Club Rush attendance increased, considering it had to be moved inside due to rain. And many clubs received attention from students never been achieved before. According to Huft, Psi Beta, the local chapter of the National Honor Society in Psychology, gathered four pages of names of new members.
To an addition to the success of Psi Beta, numerous of other new clubs have emerged this year, such as the Poetry Club.
“[The Poetry Club] is brand new, and they are, literally, out on the Quad for eight hours a day,” Huft said. “I’m pretty sure they just broke 200 members the other day. That is pretty impressive if you ask me.”
Every year the clubs try to have some type of activity to entice students to visit the club’s booth. This year Huft hopes that the clubs will yet again have an exciting event to allow more interaction with students. Last year, the California Student Nursing Association built a life-sized Operation game, which Huft described as “pretty rad.”
