The inaugural Club Kick-Off took place during lunch on Oct. 21 as club founders set up their booths and hung up posters to inform other students of their clubs and to gain new members.

“There are so many different interests when you have 400 students, so it’s nice to have different opportunities for people to get involved that might peak their interests outside of the classroom,” Principal John Pehrson said. “So, to have 60 different clubs out here, odds are there is something for everybody.”

The event allowed different clubs on campus to inform students on what they offer the Bulldog community, while also bringing in more members and making themselves better known.

“I got to experience a lot of different clubs, and it gave me new opportunities to see what’s out there,” freshman Dheitshaa Bala said. “I never really knew about MUN, and when the MUN people talked to me about how interesting it is, it really spoke to my passions.”

Clubs waved flyers and sign-up sheets, and some clubs had incentives, like buttons, stickers and food for signing up. Food Appreciation Club even handed out cake and other sweets to new members.

“It’s interesting to see so many clubs here and so many students that want to start these clubs,” freshman Anoopa Patel said. “Club Kick-Off really helped me because I found a lot of booths where I can help a lot of other people, for example the Key club and the pink ribbon club.”
