Spring Activities Fair draws students to new interests
By Julia Sippel, Staff Writer
On Friday, Jan. 29 a variety of clubs came together in the CUB ballroom to recruit new members at the Spring Activities Fair.
Jeffrey Lauck ‘18, President of Democracy Matters, called the fair a “great opportunity for both students and clubs, as it offers students a quick look at organizations they may want to join and serves as the primary recruiting tool for clubs to bring in new members.”
With nearly every campus group finding their spot along the perimeter transfer students, those who were abroad last semester and even just people looking to expand their horizons chatted with representatives from groups like Fencing Club, Live Poets Society, and Slavic Club.
Unlike the Fall equivalent and those before, however, many groups found that attendance was less than they had expected. “For the last two club fairs we were able to get at least 30-40 people to sign up but this time we got fewer than 10,” said Lauck.
“While there was a relatively low turnout, I feel like that is to be expected for the spring activities fair since most people have a set schedule by the second semester,” said Nicole Cvjetnicanin ‘18. “ Her Campus Gettysburg College had a fairly good turnout. A few people signed up for our alias and also entered their names for our prize pack drawing!”
Though there may not have been a huge crowd, the Activities Fair was nonetheless a success, with students finding new clubs and activities to join.
