Dashing down the Mall

Club Rush is one of the Associated Students Organization’s first events of the semester.

It allows the clubs and organizations the chance to show students what they have to offer.

They try to recruit people by advertising upcoming events.

A few of the newer groups are the Hemp Club, the Justice Democrats and the Photography Club.

The Justice Democrats organize off campus events. They want students to know they can get something out of politics by participating in them.

Dean of Student Engagement Juan Carlos Astorga said joining an organization shows students there’s more to school than homework and lectures.

“It’s an opportunity for our students to really see the vibrancy of clubs and where they can be involved in,” Astorga said. “I want students to get away from just going to class then going home or going to work.”

Astorga said the groups are meant to bring people together.

“They can create a community for themselves, of scholars, of activists, of involved individuals,” Astorga said. “Be it if they want to be involved in athletics, in a political organization, in Blatigenous, in Queer Brahmas Collective. Whatever they want to do, I believe we have a club for you.”

Club Rush was on Wednesday, Feb. 28, and Thursday, March 1, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
