Politics, community services, hobbies and Greek life were just some of the nearly 200 clubs and organizations catering to several hundred students at Bayramian Lawn for Meet the Clubs Day Tuesday.
Several hundred students took time to visit Bayramian Lawn for Meet the Clubs Day. The two-day event featured representatives from nearly 200 clubs and organizations ranging from politics and community services to hobbies and Greek life.
Representatives distributed fliers and displayed awards at their tables, as CSUN students gathered more information. Anthony Muñoz, criminal justice major, said, a good amount of people sign up and show up to the first meetings for Phi Delta Theta.
“It’s usually the free food that gets them to come, but not many will stay,” he said. “It is still a good opportunity to educate them on what we can offer them.”
Students from all majors went to dozens of tables searching for clubs they were interested in and fit their schedules. Roger Bonilla, senior business major, said he was looking for clubs that are related to his major. Clubs were not something that he considered in the past.
“I’m actually a senior and this is my first time considering joining a club. I figure it will help make me a lot more social,” he said.
There were plenty of fresh faces experiencing their first Meet the Clubs event. Luisse Manzanilla, freshman microbiology major, was impressed by the event and happy that CSUN offered such event.
“I love the whole idea of Meet the Clubs,” she said. “My only complaint is that it’s very cluttered.” she said she would like to see more space to walk around and meet more clubs.
Amy Wong, freshman apparel design major said she enjoyed the experience.
“I had an idea of what I was looking for, so coming into this wasn’t very difficult,” said Wong, who had trouble finding some clubs even after visiting to the information desk.
“I think the layout could have been better,” she said.
Despite the congested environment, students continued to make their way into the lines to watch what the tables had to offer. Students were treated to free candy, water, and popsicles while supplies lasted, courtesy of the clubs.
Meet the Clubs will continue on Sept. 3 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
