The student center at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus was a busy place last Tuesday, Jan. 18 as students piled into the Student Center for Club Rush.
Club Rush attracted many students either interested in joining a club, or just interested in all the activities. Many different clubs were represented at the Rush, from a Technical Club to a Rugby Club. There were also the kinds of clubs one would expect to see, like the Chess Club. A UPS recruiter also had a table open for job-seeking students.
The Student Health Advisory Club gave out cold-prevention packages. This club is associated with the Health and Wellness Center. Health and Wellness offers different services for students for low prices. Services include counseling, massage therapy and a medical clinic, to name a few.
“There has been some interest from students,” Irene Isaza, club member said.
The American Indian Student Leadership club was in attendance. This club promotes cultural awareness. Students do not have to be of Native American descent to join.
“We encourage other student from other ethnic groups to join,” Rosa Yazzie, Club President said.
Wayne Begay, mechanical engineering student, said he joined the club because he is an American Indian and he wanted to see what it was all about.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Begay said.
Along with the American Indian Club, there was also the Asian Student Association, the Pacific Unity Association, the Muslim student Association and the Hispanic/ Latino student club.
The Computer Synergy Club was also in attendance. This club is about improving sills related to technology and providing technical experience.
“Were hoping to change the number of members in the club,” John Hansen, Computer Synergy Club President said.
The Environmental Club was there, hoping to gain more members. This club is about getting involved with the community and making it more sustainable.
Thomas Vincent, speech pathology student, said he just joined, and there was a pretty good interest from students.
Club Rush took place at the South City Campus on Wednesday, Jan. 19th. Most of the same clubs were in attendance. The South City Institute was at the South City Club Rush. This club has a building east of the South City Campus where they teach about the Church and Church history.
“We’re about having fun and feeling the spirit,” Jeremy Saldivar, member of the club presidency said.
There were a few clubs at South City that did not attend Club Rush at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus since South City is where these clubs are based. These clubs include the Dance Club, the Chorus Club and the Fashion Club.
“Club Rush is a success for the clubs, most get more members,” Zee Herrera, Chair of Clubs and Organizations said. “It’s also beneficial for students because now they know about the clubs.”
