The involvement fair took place on Wednesday, Sept. 4, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Grace Hall Atrium. Students had the opportunity to learn about multiple different clubs and committees at Cabrini and why they should join.

Joe Nguyen, a member of the Cabrini rugby club, has loved being able to participate in intramural on campus.

“I started playing my freshman year after going to the Involvement Fair,” Nguyen said. “It seemed interesting because I’ve never actually played rugby before. I wanted to play football and it was the closest thing the school has to offer. I like rugby a lot because I’ve been able to make connections and meet other people who also love the sport.”

The Involvement Fair provides many alternatives for student interests on campus. It is a great way to learn about clubs and organizations that may be overlooked. Active Minds is a club that goes in-depth about mental illness and encourages people to speak out about their experiences.

The Cavalier Dance Company is a great way for dancers to get involved through jazz, ballet, and modern dance. Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Ambassadors stand up for Catholic values and try to better communities around us through faith. The Social Work Club advocates for social justice throughout the social work field.

Kadirah Williams, a player on the Cabrini softball team, is thinking of joining SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee). “I am thinking of joining SAAC, because I am an athlete and some of my other teammates are on the committee,” Williams said. “It sounds like a good way to meet other athletes on campus. It’s a way to get more involved in athletics and to help Cabrini become an even better place for students-athletes.”

SAAC is in a transition period at the moment. Jess Huda, the former head of committee, recently left. The new leader of SAAC is Brittany Runyen.  She was a member of SAAC all four years of her college career, before becoming an assistant on the women’s soccer team. Now, she is head of the committee and coordinator of athletics.

Sophomore Jon Papp joined the bowling team his freshmen year.
It was so much fun to compete and have a great time against my friends,” Papp said. “I think going to the Involvement Fair is really helpful because it’s how I found out about the bowling club. I think going to the fair would give more students more information about clubs that I normally wouldn’t think about joining.”

Students can join sports, get some exercise, become members of a committee to take on leadership initiatives,  stand up for important beliefs by fighting for change in communities everywhere.
