  • Women in Horror for Halloween
    It’s that time of year again where the weather is starting to cool down and the Halloween decorations are being put out. For me once it hits end of September my TBR becomes nothing, but horror and thriller novels. As a big mood reader the seasons and holidays determine what I want to read next. […]
  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

University to host Campus Fest

One thing students hear often is how important it is to get involved on campus.

On Thursday, students will get the chance to see all the options the University has to offer.

The University will host Campus Fest, a long-standing tradition that helps students explore organizations and activities, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Union Oval and old campus.

Campus Fest allows student organizations to set up tables and recruit new members.

Those who are interested in joining organizations can learn more about the programs the University has to offer. Students can also learn about the different businesses and agencies around town that can serve as resources for students.

“Campus Fest is an event hosted by the Office of Campus activities in the first two or three weeks of the first semester,” said Chris Bullins, associate dean of students, in an email. “The purpose of Campus Fest is to showcase over 300 student organizations, campus programs and community agencies and businesses.”

Along with organizations such as Black Student Union, Latino Student Union, Gospel Choir and World Student Association, there will be newer organizations such as the Pretty Brown Girl Collective and WAX [We Are Excellence]. They will also showcase what they have to offer and explain to students what their organizations are about and how students can get involved.

In addition to learning about new organizations, there will be games and plenty of free candy and University items to collect.

Junior Ashley Hillis said it’s a chance for campus organizations to compete for attention.

“Campus Fest is a great way for students to get involved in campus organizations and find what interests them, make new friends and learn about BGSU, but it’s a popularity contest,” said Hillis. “All the organizations want to recruit new members so it’s a competition for who has the best goodies to grab students’ attention.”

Set up and registration begins at 10 a.m. In the event of inclement weather, Campus Fest will be moved to Thursday, Sept. 11.
