  • 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, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Get Involved Fair to attract students

Some students may find it hard to find their passion at the University but that is what the Get Involved Fair is for.

The Get Involved Fair is put on every year for students by the students for them to be more involved on campus, said Chris Bullins, the associate dean of students.

The event is Friday in Olscamp room 101 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“We expect about 88 to 90 tables that consist of student organizations as well as campus departments that want to help students learn about their programs and services,” Bullins said.

Bullins said there will be a certain amount of tables outside of Olscamp 101 to interest students into stopping by.

The variety of tables that are involved in the fair include St. Baldrick’s, martial arts club, H2O church, Fad Watch, Falcon Fanatics and Greek life chapters.

“Students’ involvement is giving them skills that they’re going to need after graduation: time management, money management, speaking in front of a group and handling conflict,” Bullins said.

With 88 to 90 tables, there ought to be something that will interest students.

Justin Beauchamp, a grad student, planned and coordinated the Get Involved Fair.

One thing that Beauchamp wants to get across is that there is not one type of group there; the fair is targeted toward all variety of interests.

“The fair is good for people that maybe took a semester to focus on academics and schoolwork and now they are maybe looking to get involved with student organizations, this is definitely a great opportunity for them as well,” Beauchamp said.

Signs and tables will be outside of the room advertising the event. Freddie and Frieda will even be around throughout the day.

There will be a chance for all students who enter Olscamp 101 to find their true passion or to make a difference.

Alexa Woodburn, the marketing chair and the media liaison of St. Baldrick’s, explained what the St. Baldrick’s table at the Get Involved Fair is like.

“Our table at the event is telling people what the St. Baldrick’s event is, letting them know how they could get involved and how what we do affects childhood cancer,” Woodburn said.

Woodburn explained that all of the money that was raised for St. Baldrick’s goes to funding childhood cancer.

Having a table at the Get Involved Fair will hopefully get more people to volunteer with St. Baldrick’s.

There will be a computer available for people to sign up and become involved.

“We’ve only been around for two years, so we’re not as established,” Woodburn said. “There is a lot of room for first year students to get involved throughout their whole time here at [the University].”

Bullins, Beauchamp, Woodburn and everyone else involved with the Get Involved Fair has put in a lot of time in order to benefit the students.

Bullins believes that there are only positive outcomes available for students who are involved.

“I just hope that if people have the opportunity on Friday, that they take the time to stop by,” Bullins said. “I think there is something interesting about learning about something that you didn’t know existed on campus. I think it could really open some doors to network and to learn something new about yourself.”
