Involvement Fair boosts engagement in student body

Involvement+Fair+boosts+engagement+in+student+body

From Jan. 31 to Feb. 1, registered student organizations and other clubs were invited to join and attend the Involvement Fair from 6-8 p.m. at the Illini Union’s Courtyard Café; A, B and C Rooms; and South Lounge. The fair aims to promote organizations as well as talk to new students looking to get involved on campus.

The Involvement Fair had clubs and organizations that span from major-specific and academic-centered to clubs that are meant for fun and extracurricular activities.

Ryan Wang, freshman in LAS, went to discuss the organizations that interest him to come out and attend the fair.

“I’m pre-med, so I mostly came here for professional clubs,” Wang said. “I wasn’t really looking for fun clubs, but I found a few that interested me.” 

William Bartee, junior in LAS, discussed the importance of having this event halfway into the school year and what he wants his International Film Club booth to accomplish.

“Not everyone goes to Quad Day; some people want to reach out in the middle of the year, and if there’s no fair then it becomes harder for those students to reach out and find those groups,” Bartee said. “We just want to reach out to people that might also have a passion for movies and want to share that experience together.”
