Students Explore Opportunities at Annual Organization Fair
On Aug. 30, 2017 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., the organizations and clubs of Frostburg State University (FSU) had the opportunity to claim a table and recruit new members. This is an annual event within the first few days of school, so new students and returning students have the opportunity to explore all there is to offer on campus.
There were dozens of organizations and clubs trying to gain new members as students funneled their way through the path from the Lane University Center past the clock tower. During this event, all of the organizations and clubs participating were able to show off their group and get students involved. There was a large presence from a variety of groups including Greek Life, the Student Government Association (SGA), and the University Programming Council (UPC).
SGA President James Kirk told The Bottom Line, “The organization fair is a great opportunity for freshmen and upperclassmen students to experience the best of what Frostburg State has to offer. Our institution’s numerous and diverse student clubs, organizations, and societies offer our students the unique ability to expand their horizons, build relationships, and explore new interests.” For SGA, the organization fair resulted in the swearing in of eight senators for the academic year.
As stated previously, the Organization Fair is an annual event geared toward getting students involved. This can be a monumental moment for an organization or club as it can mean a full group for the academic year.
Students can find more campus wide information for groups, such as the ones at the Organization Fair, in State Lines and Spotlight Online.
