Student Organizations And Clubs Join Together With Community Groups For One-Day Event Promoting Extracurricular Activities

Chestertown, MD, September 14, 2004 — On Sunday, September 26, the Washington College Student Service Council along with the Washington College Student Government Association (SGA) will sponsor Fall Club Fair in Kent Circle from 12pm until 4pm. This event is free and open to the public. Live music from the Musicians' Union as well as interactive activities and games sponsored by each club will be provided. Participants will have the opportunity to meet representatives from over 30 Washington College Clubs and Organizations. Community organizations will also emphasize the importance of volunteering for a variety of different causes in Chestertown such as mentoring, working with the Chester River Association, and volunteering at the Community Food Pantry.

Club Fair is a great way for new students, as well as returning students, to learn about what clubs and organizations Washington College has to offer. Extracurricular activities have become an extension and application of the liberal arts philosophy. Therefore, Club Fair showcases what students are doing on campus and gives new students the opportunity to join in these endeavors. Organizations that are participating include academic clubs, language and culture organizations, art and music groups, service organizations, support groups, advocacy groups, honor societies, and athletic organizations. With these rich and eclectic perspectives, we hope that all students will benefit from this fun-filled day.
