So last Wednesday was Walsh’s annual Student Activities Fair in the David Center! This was the third and final Activities Fair that fellow blogger, Ali, and I got to be a part of. Senior year is full of bittersweet moments and this was definitely one of them. But I’m not about that sappy stuff, so we’re not going to think about “lasts” of anything right now.
ANYWAY, if you don’t know what the Student Activities Fair is, it is a day when all of the clubs and organizations at Walsh set up display booths that showcase their club in hopes recruiting some new club members. This is a great day for everyone on campus to take advantage of, whether you are a freshman or a senior, because there are a ton of awesome clubs here at Walsh to join, and there are new clubs started all the time!
If there is one piece of advice that I would tell anyone at Walsh is to join at least one club. The clubs and organizations are a great way to branch out, meet new people, develop leadership skills, and have a ton of fun! Plus, did you know that all the clubs at Walsh have to participate in at least one service project a semester? So, by being in a club you will have the opportunity to do some service for the local community! If we don’t have a club that you were looking for, then get some friends together and start one up! We have students start their own clubs all of the time.
The reason Ali and I were at the fair is because, since sophomore year, we have both been coordinators for the Campus Ambassadors Program! I know I have already talked about what Campus Ambassadors do, but to refresh your memory, we are the tour guides on campus! Although giving tours is our main responsibility, we get to help out with other events on campus as well. There are four Open Houses throughout the year when high school students are paired with Campus Ambassadors for a day so they get to sit in classes and have a chance to see how awesome it is to be a Cavalier!
It you didn’t get a chance to stop by the fair, don’t fret! All of the clubs send out emails when they have their meetings, and they are open to all students. Just attend one of their meetings and I am sure the club officers will catch you up on any information that was covered at previous meetings. Officers are always welcoming new members, any time of the year!
So get out there and get involved! Have a fun and active year!
’Til next time, go Cavs!
