Political clubs move beyond presidential election

With the presidential election over, the two newly formed political clubs on-campus, the College Republicans and Student Democrat Association, are now focusing on moving forward. Each organization has plans for the remainder of the school year.

The College Republicans are taking the initiative to focus on creating funds for their organization for the remainder of the school year by having fun and creative activities and events.

This is the club’s first year here at Cabrini. Currently there are 13 members but over a 100 people have signed up to join.

For the upcoming holiday the College Republicans will be selling Christmas gift bags that will consist of a holiday candle, hot chocolate, coffee, personalized Christmas cards and much more. The price for these bags will range from $20 to $25. The gift bags will be sold at the upcoming basketball games here at Cabrini.

Future plans that are still in the works are a possible pool party at the Dixon Center, a formal dance that will be held at local country club and possible journalism articles dealing with the organization.

The College Republicans are also trying to focus more on a journalistic standpoint for their organization. They would like to start up an article or newsletter to educate people concerning what the Republican Party stands for and events that are happening within the party nationally, locally or on-campus. It would also express any thoughts or opinions on particular issues or topics currently going on.

Another focus is on getting the club’s name out. Since the election is over the club wants to let the Cabrini community be aware that they are still out there.

“We are still trying to come up with ideas,” Julia Knudsen, sophomore and President of the College Republicans, said. “Find ways to reach out to our community, make people aware of our club and have fun at the same time.”
