Are You Getting Involved?

The Involvement Fair was held on Wednesday, Sept. 5 in Grace Hall.  Walking through the doors of Grace hall people were greeted with an energetic crowd of 280-300.

If you are a student who was looking to get involved this was the place to be.  Tables upon tables of various clubs and activities lined all available space.

At each table was a representative from that particular club or activity with exclusive information about it.

“The Involvement Fair is like a one-stop shop.  All the clubs are in one area instead of having to search to find out what Cabrini has to offer,” Tori Lyde,  junior transfer education major, said.

At nearly every table paper handouts were readily available.  On these handouts students were provided a larger spectrum of information pertaining to the club or activity.

“The sorority is having a welcome week starting Monday, Sept. 17th for any girl interested in joining our sorority,” Katie Pickard, junior exercise science and secretary with the Delta Xi Phi sorority, said.  “We have different events, Monday through Wednesday in the library so feel free to come out.”

The majority of the clubs at this event had great success in gaining new members. One of the more popular clubs was the photography club run by Linda Panetta. It gained 42 members.

“Many people get the misconception that you need to know a lot about photography to join the club.  As long as you have a desire to take photos this club will suite you well.” Panetta said.

The Philadelphia Zoo On Wheels was also there.  People were able to interact with the animals the zoo brought.  The favorite of most seemed to be the hedgehog.

The Involvement Fair creates a more accessible way for students to live up to the famous saying, “Do something extraordinary.” Joining clubs is definitely a main objective this event has to offer.

There is more than what meets the eye though.  Joining and becoming a part of different clubs at Cabrini helps tremendously for meeting new people.

Alexa Milano, a sophomore business and communications major, had some insight into this pertaining to C.A.P. Board.  A club she is apart of.

“I love it.  You get to know a lot of the people who work around campus.  And you get to know a lot of the students that go here.  It’s  just a great experience no matter what your major is it will help you out no matter what.”
