Clubfest is upon us!
Tomorrow, Wednesday January 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. over 200 clubs will be on display in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.
200 may seem like a small proportion in comparison to the more than 800 clubs Iowa State has to offer, but I promise you Clubfest is worth a look or two. It is incredibly easy to check out a booth and sign up for emails in a club that may interest you. Plus, free candy is often in abundance at several tables throughout the fest.
And if that doesn’t persuade you, check out what these club supporters have to say!
On joining an academic club: "The ISU Pre-Law Club brings students interested in law school in touch with law students, attorneys, representatives from law schools, and with LSAT prep opportunities. Attending meetings is a great way to figure out if law school is for you and to network as you prepare for the application process and attending law school." – Carly Crist, Pre-Law Club President
On joining a non-academic club: "It’s a fun way to get involved. We accept all levels and we like to have fun and we do that by dancing." – Taylor Huebotter, Orchesis II President
On getting involved: "As a college student it is important to challenge yourself both inside and outside of the classroom. Student Organizations help you to learn something new and give back to the campus you enjoy being a part of." – Dylan West, LAS Recruitment Specialist
So whether you’re looking to further your educational exploration or are simply looking for a way to take a break and have some fun, student organizations are clearly the answer.
So what are you waiting for? Go take a quick lunch break in the Memorial Union and check out Clubfest! You’ll never know what’s waiting for you until you do!
