(Video Blog) RIT Club Fair 2011

Alissa Anderson on Wednesday, 14 September 2011. Posted in Clubs

Last week RIT welcomed over 2500 new students to campus - to introduce the student body to campus, students participated in orientation activities with upper-class leaders. Orientation Week closed with the annual club fair held in the Gordon Field House.

RIT is home to over 205 active clubs, 11 Major Student Organizations, and 30 Greek Organizations on campus. All clubs were invited to staff a table at the Club Fair to help recruit new members and promote student involvement.

The Club Mission Statement for Student Government Clubs and Organizations exist to bring students of similar interest together and provide them with opportunities to become effective leaders. These groups enhance the quality of student life by fostering social interaction, leadership development, school spirit and an affinity to RIT. Clubs and Organizations promote activities, diversity, service and learning outside of the classroom.

From what I gathered from Twitter, Greg Pollack our Student Government President observed that clubs are dreaming big and recruiting big - KanJam signed over 200 new members, and Dodgeball collected 300 new students.

In case you missed the fair, there will be more club fairs in the Student Alumni Union Lobby on September 23rd and October 21st.  Or follow @RITClubs on Twitter.
