On Tuesday, students made their way to the Colket Center for the Spring Activities Fair where a variety of clubs had posters and sign-up sheets in the hopes of recruiting new members. Representatives of the Campus Activities Board, Student Government Association, The Brackety Ack, and several other on-campus organizations were in attendance, with plenty of information for students interested in becoming involved on campus.
The wide variety of organizations reflected the many interests of Roanoke students. Students from the College Democrats, Republicans, and Libertarians attended the event, offering information about their organizations for those interested in politics. For students looking for community service opportunities, Habitat for Humanity had sign-up sheets for information about their upcoming projects. Club sports teams appealed to students seeking involvement with on-campus sports teams without the time commitment required for playing on a varsity team. For those seeking a club that would allow them to spend time outdoors without necessarily playing a sport, the Outdoor Adventures Club and the Equestrian Club offered a fun alternative. Finally, clubs like InterVarsity focused on uniting students of different religious backgrounds.
Many of the clubs represented at the Activities Fair handed out fliers with information about their upcoming events. Kristin Sink mentioned that the Student Government Association will sponsor Maroon Madness on Saturday, where students who attend will receive free T-shirts. Several other club representatives said that they have upcoming meetings and events open to the public. For more information about these events, check the bulletin boards around campus, or contact the organizations directly.
Overall, the Activities Fair gave students a great chance to survey the school’s many organizations offering many ways for them to become involved on campus.
