Are you a new student looking for something fun to do in your spare time?
The Office of Student Life may have a solution for you.
There are two upcoming Club Fairs, one from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 7 in the El Paso Lounge and another from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sept. 8 in the East Breezeway. The events are sponsored by the Office of Student Life (OSL). It’s an opportunity for students to get more information about the dozens of clubs on this campus.
If you are still not sure about being part of a club, Kristi Nealy, student life coordinator, said. “You need to supplement your academics with your social, your personal and professional. A lot of employers are going to be looking for students that are well rounded and these students will have leadership skills, interpersonal skills. Our students will be able to interact with students from other countries so they have diversity also on their side.”
Nealy continued, “So these opportunities will be available to our students through joining clubs and organizations on campus. Besides, they will make new friends and have fun.”
At the end of September, the club list will be available for fall at the OSL. Students can get contact information on club advisers as well.
Any current credit college student is able to join any club but each club has its own requirements.
Nealy noted that being part of a club impacts students’ lives in a positive way.
