Student Involvement Fair


On Wednesday, Sept. 7, Siena Heights University hosted its annual Student Involvement Fair. Student Engagement conducts this event usually the first or second week of school because “it’s not just for freshmen, but for all students on campus to learn about them and meet some people with the same interest as you,” said junior Alexis Comden, a fair attendee.

Director of Student Engagement Gabriel Dunbar said that this year was successful.

“It’s one of the only times that all of the student organizations are all in the same place at the same time,” said Dunbar.

According to Dunbar, student involvement is a strong predictor of college success, which is why this is such an important event and one that continues to prosper.

Kaitlyn Maley, a freshman, shared that she was required to go to the event but said that she was glad she went because she signed up for clubs she usually wouldn’t have.

“I signed up for clubs I believe I will be very happy in,” Maley said.

The Student Involvement Fair is designed for all students to be able to see what groups are offered and get involved both on and off campus. If a student does not see what they were hoping for, they can easily make start their own group, as well. New organizations are made each year with the growing interest of the students.

“If I hadn’t gone, I wouldn’t have known about all these clubs I could join for free!” said freshman Grace Carey.

Those unable to attend and want to get involved or are interested in starting your own group, contact Dunbar.
