Student involvement on campus is an important mission for CSUB. Joining a club, fraternity, sorority, or organization can help students become successful. It can build character and teach students how to plan, organize, and become leaders. To help students find the place to do all these things, CSUB hosted a Club Fair on January 8th inside Dorothy Donohue Hall.
CSUB students visited many booths to learn about the different clubs CSUB has to offer. “I’m always looking for a way to get involved, but never have the time,” says Sophia Hackler, a Communications major. “This year I set time aside to try and join a club or organization. This club fair is helping me with the decision on what to join.”
CSUB offers more than 50 clubs and organizations for students. Each one has its own mission. “Our goal is to get more students to join our Muslim Students Association club,” says Hala Alnojar, a junior at CSUB. “We want for students to get informed and get educated on the misconceptions about Islam.”
For those interested in Greek life, CSUB offers five sororities, and two fraternities. Melissa Hernandez, secretary of the Theta Sigma Chi sorority and senior at CSUB says, “We are all about empowering young women to a higher education. We are out here to promote our organization and give our support to all those women who need it. All women should join Theta Sigma Chi.”
This quarter, the CSUB Club Fair had a lot to offer. It successfully gave students many options on how to get involved. If you missed it, you can visit the CSUB club website for more information: http://www.csub.edu/getinvolved/styled/page1.html.
