Club Rush 2011
As the summer mornings become more cool and dim, student leaders on campus get ready for another year at school. The beginning of the school year can mean a variety of things for students. For most it means becoming organized and planning for the upcoming semester. Others it means having their final fun in the sun before chilling weather grips Utah for the winter.
On September 6 and 7, students can enhance their future here on campus by participating in Club Rush. Held in the Courtyard from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, students can meet with different club officials and join any of the 160 clubs this campus has to offer. “It creates a connection on campus you wouldn’t normally get,” said Sara Roseborough, Vice President of clubs.
Roseborough felt a disconnection with the school, which seems to be a common problem for all college students. “I hated the first two years on campus,” she said. “Before I became involved with school activities my life consisted of getting ready for my classes, attending classes, then going home. There was no interest involved and because there was no interest there was no love.”
Just like Roseborough, many students, either new or returning to university life, can find themselves walking through the hallways of UVU feeling small or invisible. Feeling some connection to the school can sometimes be a daunting task. “I don’t know what’s going on in the school,” said Hailey Fallis, a 21-year-old freshman. “It feels like you have to be assertive to find activities going on.” Joining a club can alleviate some of that pressure.
Club Rush is expecting approximately 50 or more booths for students to meet with club officials, network with other students, and join a club.
