Club Day brings clubs to Quad

City College’s Club Day event in the quad gave clubs on campus an opportunity, March 1 to provide information, recruit new club members, fundraise and raise club awareness.
Club representatives set up tables in the Quad and promote their clubs by telling students about the events, activities and fun things they do. Most clubs gave out free gifts or sold items to help raise money for their club.
“It’s such a nice break between classes,” said City College student Victoria Nesseth. “I might just have to join a club today.”
The tables were complete with pamphlets, sign-up sheets and an enthusiastic club member to greet fellow scholars. If you forgot to grab a pamphlet or missed the event, many clubs are even on Facebook or students can inquire about joining them by attending one of their events.
An enlightening amount of culture was being spread around campus. There was everything from bright green origami jumping frogs made by the Japanese Club to colorful handmade earrings made by the Indigenous People’s Club.
“We are all crafty,” said Indigenous People’s Club member Michael Ramirez. “I’m good at bead work so I made earrings.”
In spite, of last year’s Aramark driven districtwide ban on the sales of homemade food, clubs got creative with fundraising.
“We want to encourage clubs to participate in other ways of fundraising,” said Club and Events Board President Taylor Valmores. “Think outside of the box.”
According to club representatives, the turnout for the event was positive.
“We usually get at least a page of sign-ups,” said Jackie Pfister, vice president of the Amnesty International Club. This club fundraised with a good old fashioned rummage sale.
Other clubs, like the Sac City Freethinkers Club, sold free thought pins, books and even candles. They also sold “reason” candles for $1 to $4. Their purpose was to “shine light on superstition,” as explained by Windsor Taro, the club’s treasurer.
“We fundraise to offer a free-thought scholarship,” said Taro.

yellow and white tape. Students were jumping from one side of the stick to another in an attempt to master the challenge.
“Tinikling is a traditional Filipino folk dance,” said Mary Grace Deleon, a member of the club. “It’s so much fun, people love it.”
Club Day promotes an opportunity for students to become an active scholar on campus.
“[Club Day] is a way to get involved,” said Valmores. “Meet people, get motivation and be a part of something. This is an annual event and participation and support always equals a successful turnout.”
