Club presidents at California Baptist University met Jan. 16 for an informational meeting about the upcoming events and strategies they must prepare for their club.
During the spring semester, five new clubs will be offered, including the Health Care Administration Club, the Pre-Optometry Club, the Pub- lic Health Club, the Society of Automotive Engineer Club and the Fellowship Anthropology StudentClub.
“We have many great events coming up,” said Marina Soliman, junior biology major and president of the Pre-Optometry Club. “We have an iodine section workshop for students, and we will also be going to a middle school and talking to children about eye care and what optometry is.”
Clubs at CBU are required to hold three events apart from the Club Fair, which will be Feb. 6 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Stamps Courtyard.
Kristin Waters, program coordinator of club and events, held the club presidents meeting and was in charge of relaying the procedures.
“The Club Fair is a fantastic way for students to get connected and sign up for clubs and receive great information,” Waters said. “It is also an enjoyable way for students to be involved on campus.”
While all students have the opportunity to get involved during the Club Fair, commuter students will have a chance to receive a free lunch during the Commuter Connection Lunch.
Unlike previous years, commuters will be given a card that will need to be stamped by a club member. After visiting five clubs and receiving five stamps, commuters will receive their free meal.
“It is really hard for commuters to get connected to school, so the Club Fair is a great way for us to get an update on what is happening on campus,” said commuter student Emily Leria, freshman biology major. “Plus, everyone loves free food.”
