William Jewell College hosted its annual Activities Fair in the Yates-Gill Student Union Aug. 20. The event was hosted by College Union Activities (CUA) and helped new and returning students gain information about student led clubs to join.
Several students, mostly first-years, attended the Fair. The large number of groups present at the Fair showcased the wide range of interests that Jewell students have. Groups in attendance included: WJC Ballroom Dance, oSTEM, Non-Profit Leadership Association and Greek Life.
In addition to the excitement of finding activities to join, students were treated to snow cones courtesy of CUA.
Maggie Knesel, senior nonprofit leadership and Spanish major, worked at the Zeta Tau Alpha table during the event and spoke to the Hilltop Monitor about her experience with the Fair throughout her years at Jewell.
“The Activities Fair is a really good way for all the first-years to have their first experience with the Jewell community. It’s also really nice, as an upperclassman, to be able to see my friends before the new year begins,” Knesel said. “Even as a senior, I find new clubs that I wish I would have joined last year. Even though it’s aimed towards first-years the event is good for everyone.”
Many clubs can look forward to new members thanks to the interest built at the Activities Fair.
