The college's Student Involvement Fair, which allows students to explore some of the more than 200 clubs and organizations on campus, will return to an in-person format from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 25, in the Marano Campus Center arena.

While masks will be required to attend, the opportunity for students to explore exciting possibilities and for organizations to welcome new members provides a jolt of energy for the start of the semester, particularly for incoming students with an early chance to network with the campus community.

Nsikak Ekong, director of student life and involvement for Student Association, said he and everybody in SA are dedicated to helping students benefit from getting involved throughout campus and continuing to find ways to make this possible and beneficial for everyone.

Becoming involved with clubs and organizations provide students the opportunity to increase leadership and organizational skills, pursue a passion, build a network and develop lifelong friendships.

Auxiliary Services will provide free snacks while supplies last.
