There are more than 50 clubs on Cabrini’s campus, so how are we supposed to decide on which ones we should join? Every year Cabrini hosts two involvement fairs; one during the fall and one during the spring. There is a club for everyone, but you need to find the one where you are the missing puzzle piece. There are so many clubs to choose from, including, but not limited to, Black Student Union, Pura Vida, Multi-cultural club, Catholic Relief Services, Body Image Coalition, Student Government, Dance Team, Radio, Chess Club, Social Work Club, and so many more.
The first step to picking a club that you fit best in is to choose a couple that you are most interested in and look into what they do and their mission. Pick around 10 that interest you and find out the times they meet. Once you know the times they meet you can look at which ones fit in with your schedule. This will limit some of the clubs that you can go to but put the ones you cannot make on the back burner because you might be able to go next semester.
The second step you need to take is to go to a meeting and see if the environment is what you like. If you go to one meeting and do not like it, you do not have to go back again. Just because you sign up for the club does not mean you are tied down to that club. Talk to the president or someone from the executive board or even the advisor to ask them questions you have about the club. By doing this, you are making connections within the club, and you will feel more included in this new space.
Clubs are amazing places to talk about or do things that you enjoy doing. They are a great place to make more friends, and some can help you build your resume while you are doing something that you enjoy doing. Clubs are here to better your college experience! They make an excellent opportunity to go out and do what you like with others.
