National parks, engineering, service learning, arts, yearbook, sports, poetry, you name it, Hun students have created a club for it. On Monday, September 20th, the annual Club Fair took place on The Mall and students gathered to sign up for over seventy-five new and returning clubs.
To create a club, student leaders must pitch their club to the Dean of Students for Student Life, identify a clear mission statement for the club, attend leadership training, commit to hosting weekly meetings, and setting goals for the club to accomplish. New and existing clubs are categorized as academic, affinity/culture, service/awareness, arts, school spirit, civics, or hobby/spirit.
With over a third of the clubs being new, here are a few to look out for:
The HOSA club is an international medical science club with a mission of helping students better understand the healthcare profession. Led by Neha Nanda ’23, HOSA club will prepare students to pursue a career in medicine by teaching members the ins and outs of biomedical science.
FLOW Club was created to give students a space to practice mindfulness, participate in service projects, and spread positivity throughout the campus.
The Investment Club will take a deep dive into the ins and outs of investment banking and are planning to enter investment competitions to put their knowledge to the test.
A new club, Politicon, will provide students a platform to debate on a range of topics in the political science and economics field.
A fan favorite amongst the students at this year’s Club Fair was the Chilk Club. In this club, students will determine what the ultimate chocolate milk is and according to student leader Charlie Stowe ’23, it’s no easy task. Club members will rate chocolate milk on flavor, consistency, quality, and even research the impact that each chocolate milk brand has on the environment.
